Children of Rwanda #7: Playful departure

On my departure from the first Tearfund project I visited in Rwanda, the children got out of their shy shells and put on a joyful display for the cameras. This chap particularly caught my eye. I thought he would had what it took to be an American Next Top Model contestant.

Ladies, what do you think?

I wonder why we've both decided to blog on the same day? I'm not sure about ANTM, but I do love his teeth! Great picture honey. Xxx

Beautiful shot. I do agree with Bitchy about ANTM. He is a little long in the tooth for that competition!
Jide Alakija: Hi Boye, nice to have you back again.
