Shy Girl in Tanzanian Village

This is an image of a small Tanzanian girl in her home village. Her friends and village mates ran up to our group of foreigners to hold our hands, ask us to take their picture, etc. This young girl was a little more hesitant, and would look at us from afar. After we spent more time in her village, she made her way closer to me eyeing my camera. I wonder what she was thinking. Perhaps she was offended we had disrupted her home vibe.
