a portrait of a Quechua Boy - Abel

Abel is 3 years old. He lives deep in the Peruvian Andes.
He was letting me know that he wanted to "fly" again one more time after i picked him up and spun him around like an airplane.
Life in the Andes is very simple and it's a reminder that a lot of people live without things such as iphones or laptops. This kids is happy with a football and a small toy car to play with.

Very nice message to the picture. I show my kids pictures like this all the time, and ones of kids in South America playing football. I let them know this is why kids grow up to be such great players, because the pure joy of football and not having everything else to distract them.
