I wasn't sure I wanted to be here anymore. The village was dirty and stank. We had just gathered the kids to start the program for the afternoon when a little boy with huge eyes caught my eye. I knelt down and asked if I could take his picture. He agreed, but wouldn't smile...until I turned the camera around to show him his photograph. Suddenly an adorable grin broke out on his face and this dirty little Gypsy boy and I were friends...all because of a simple act of taking a simple picture.
