13th July 2014 – Port Vila, Vanuatu
Like dragonflies in the light, they danced with no duress. Beyond words, beyond questions of tomorrow. Beyond fun. The future holds a key they can’t see, nor can guess. But they thrive, because today, they are children of the sun.
Another early day, only to see Brazil get thrashed again by the Dutch. Can’t say I can complain, because the Dutch are my favourite European team. Oh Brazil, thy numbers do you, no justice to your past. Maybe you should have heeded to the words of Thyrion Lannister.
After the match, went back to sleep a little bit. The afternoon saw me trying to catch up on some well-needed exercise, which I haven’t had since I started travelling. And then stepped out around dusk, to the nearby park, to watch some local lads play rugby. They had invited me yesterday to join them, but I had to refuse today since I was more keen on taking pictures.
The game went long, and I took copious shots, but none good enough to make the ‘pic of the day’. Although, on my way back, saw this little girl ride the swing against the sunlight.
And I knew I had a winner.
