Bubble Surprise

After a rainy and muddy hike deep into the mountains of Guatemala, we visited a school attended by children of neighboring villages. Some of these kids walked an hour each way, each day, to school and back. They live simply and have little. When our group showed up with games and bubbles, the children were thrilled. We enjoyed an afternoon playing and laughing with them. It was something I never wanted to forget, so I pulled out my phone to snap a few pictures. When I had a chance to look at them later that evening, I was shocked at what this picture had captured inside the bubble.
