The crowd and cacophony swelled with new arrivals, and we were all held back by a solid steel gate that looked like a giant chocolate bar. The woman in the photograph is carrying a sleeping child on her back, covered by a grandmuba [a traditional Gambian dress] to protect it from the heat and dust. She is looking through an opening in the gate, trying to get an idea of how long the wait will be.    I was struck by her dignity and composure in such a trying situation.
