Great baba_flies 2010-02-05 3:44

Hello Kristaps! I don't know if you can rush home with such a heavy load on your back :))) but okay she is 10 or 12 ... at this age you are always in a hurry and there seem no limits to what you can do but maybe some years later I am not too sure about her back but nobody cares at this corner of the world, I guess. I really like this photo, it shows a lot without showing too much but we understand. Have a good weekend, Barbara.

Default To baba_flies: they say that's why they're so short...

hi there, Barbara

local Mayans say this way of carrying loads is the reason why they are so short on average. maybe there is some truth to that.
and, yes, nobody really cares. children work to support their families starting from a very young age. she's not an exception, she's the norm...
