Kids on White River

From my trip to the Solomon Islands.

 

These are a bunch of the kids who live around this part of town, 5 minutes down the road from my parents' house. They were just chilling out next to the road as we drove past, and I snapped a couple of photos from the Hilux of them. The people in SI are absolutely lovely, with always a smile and a wave to spare for anyone walking, cycling or driving past.

 

An interesting note: the bleached-looking hair is not artificial. A lot of Solomon Islanders, especially those from the island of Malaita, naturally get blonde or blonde-tipped hair, ranging from a slight reddish to an almost whitey yellow colour.

 

Explore #6 for me! This has been a *good* day for my photoss!
