This photo was taken yesterday afternoon. The local children were making a racket behind my house so I went to investigate. There were maybe 60 kids doing what they could to catch small fish and crabs in the stream. I've seen this before when the locals would look for fish to celebrate Good Friday but the reason for the fish hunt yesterday was hunger. The children are only eating once a day and the food they're eating is filling but not nutritious. Told them to come by Monday morning and we'll see what we can do for them. These are probably the same kids who are "borrowing" all our guava fruit. What are ya gonna do?
