I often think about this village in Rajastan. It's a very special village because it's been certified 'Child Friendly'. This means that all the children of the village actually go to school and NO child works. It's an incredible thing to see. You can feel the energy and hope. I still have the red cotton bangle they tied on my wrist when I visited last year.
In Djibouti, near the boarder with Ethiopia, these boys made models of animals out of mud to sell. Visitors only come to this remote area once a month in certain seasons. I bought one from them, wrapped it in a towel to bring home, but it broke on the journey. I stuck it together but it is now disintegrating and the mud is gradually flaking off.

And finally for today, a shot of rural India at night. I have no idea where I was when I took this! We were waiting for a bus but in all the chaos and traffic there didn't seem to be one. In the end we accepted a lift back to Delhi from a random driver, which turned out to be about a 6 hour drive! I love India at night: It takes on a character and mood all of it's own. Distinctive and I love it.
