Crazy Kids

I went to Kecamatan Gandus today. This is one of the poorest areas in Palembang and it is the location that we had selected to distribute the donations we received from our "Toy Drive". Actually, it turned out to be more of a Toy, Books and Clothes Drive.

I went there to meet with the head man of the area to discuss the logistics of how we would get this stuff out to his people.

While we were looking for the place, we were stopped for awhile in front of these kids. At first, there were only four of them. When they saw my camera, they started smiling for it.

And after awhile, I think they called their other friends to come look at the crazy lady in the car with the camera!

They were cute. When we finally moved, they followed us. Some scrambled over the gate and a couple managed to squeeze under it. Giggling and laughing all the way.

I'll have more photos of the area on Sunday. I didn't take any photos once we got into the area today.

In the first picture orange shorts is in front of the gate. In the second picture blue shorts is. I think there was a magician at work there.
