This morning as one of the cars stopped to change a tire, I was approached by two young boys. One of them asked me to take his picture. After I took his picture, he asked for something in exchange. I gave him one of my pens, and Mark gave him some chocolate and cranberries, which he shared with his companion. I wish we had brought extra school supplies for sharing with the children that we encountered.

The boys were waiting for school to start; the simple schoolhouse was down the road a bit.
