This photo was taken July 10, 2011 in my house in Ecuador. It was taken in the afternoon after lunch time, when most of the people in my rural town are resting and staying out of the hot sun. The two girls in the photo are sisters, Juana (6), and Maria (3), who live across the street from me and spend as much time in my house with me and their mother and I will allow. A lot of times they ask me to lay down so they can use my legs as a slide, or I will lift them up with my legs and they just love it. The photo was taken by another friend who was in my house at the time of the three of us taking a break from playing and just resting. These are the moments I love about my service, just being in the moment with beautiful children who I love so much and can spend some quiet time just cuddling with them, and also enjoying the curious questions they ask me about various things like why I'm so tall, or if I'm gonna make them "comida" (food) later :).
