Symbiosis between a mother and her son while walking in Awassa, Ethiopia.

She had a cozy stand in the middle of Awassa, Ethiopia, where she performed the coffee ceremony. Whilst she was preparing it, her son was playing around. After some minutes her son went to her and hugged her legs. He did not let her escape until she lifted him up and carried him to her back. He seemed an extension of herself.
