I found this really nice little vid while doing my usual sunday night browse on the 500 photographers website last night.

Swiss photographer/videographer Yann Gross travelled to Uganda in 2009 to document the building of Kitintale skatepark, the first (and at the time) only skatepark in East Africa. Built entirely by the community, without help or support from the government, his documentary below is a really charming watch, and a nice way to spend 10 minutes of your day.

oh, and "You can be a doctor AND a professional skateboarder" is one of the best quotes i've heard for a while :- )
