Young boys throw themselves wholeheartedly into an impromptu game of soccer in a remote village in rural Mozambique. The ball has just arrived as a gift from a guest who had stayed at the game lodge closest to the village and had had an opportunity to visit the local community as a part of their stay.
Happily abandoning their makeshift ball of string and plastic scaps for a real ball, these little guys couldn’t have been more enthusiastic players. I on the other hand wasn’t so sure of the virtues of the game as I pounded around the bare pitch trying to coordinate my feet on the ball and my face up to the camera madly trying to capture the action! I wasn’t voted MVP of the match….I wonder why??
