Portrait of Suri boys at school in Koka.

 

These are kids from the school in Koka. Two years ago we stayed almost one week on the compound in front of the school, and I returned in October 2012 to stay there another couple of days. It's really amazing how you can connect with these children if you have enough time. At that morning suddenly a huge thunderstorm was coming up. The classes stopped for some reason, and the children of the first grade started singing and dancing in the class room. The song was a Bume song which I knew very well because I heard that song very often on my trip. I went into the class room, joined the dancing and got this beautiful picture.
