A moment of prayer
On a gorilla trek in Bwindi, Uganda, we spent a magical half hour with the "bweza" family ("pretty" in the local dialect). With these magnificent gentle giants on the verge of extinction - only a few hundreds left in the wild - the experience was extremely emotional. Their interactions and facial expressions were eerily human-like.
