... around us, but settled down to receive a piece of chocolate each. Their mother smiled warmly from a window nearby. The town felt untouched. Dirt tracks weaved between the simple one room houses, livestock wandered and a man carried a child. Children asked us for pens and we were acutely aware of the contrast in our lives.
