Kids are great. The kids I came across during my trips around Subsaharan Africa are happy and playful, sometimes shy, but always welcoming and ready for mischief. They may not have the fancy toys that kids in the West have and they may not know how to use the computer by the age of 4, but are eager to learn, want to engage, are curious, quick to pick up any new game, and always want to practice English. They are great companions and they always follow you wherever you go. These pictures are some of the great kids I have met in the last couple of years.
