first white

first white

Most of this children in this village had not seen a white person before, maybe just passing in a 4-wheel drive at most. One little boy came up to me and gleefully started rubbing my arms to see if 'it' would come off. Well, there was nothing for it but to rub his arms back, to the endless amusement of all the other kids. :)
