"Today life for the Baka is more difficult than ever, and perhaps there is really no future for them on our planet. Yet to see them you would never say this. Full of fun and light of heart (when they are in the forest), you can hear their singing and laughter well before you arrive at their camps. They accept life as it comes, exorcising suffering with good humour and simplicity..."
