Wardiru was eating them from the tin. He'd never had them before and the happiness in his face gave me great pleasure. Santo reduced us to giggles with impressions of his school teachers, banishing from our remembrance that this was a night of goodbyes.

I've posted my response to last week with a brief(?!) explanation for the poor show. You can find it somewhere here. This week the theme seems a bit … Continue reading Photo Challenge – Week 2
