In memory of CB [RIP], I will post some of the fotos I shared there.
These are the first three fotos posted on 15 July 2007. They are the wonderful children from Garhi Habibullah, Pakistan [where I was involved in the construction of a relief hospital]. FYI, the mountainous northern region was hit by an earquake in 2005 which destroyed many buildings and claimed many lives.
We stayed at the site and these children will come and kacau us after work. Talking and playing with them was a great way to divert our minds from the misery of the almost-destroyed village.
The "rascals" of the village. The one [2nd from left] with the kungfu kick, I call him "Garhi-Taikor" [he is the leader of the pack].
Osman [left] runs a burger stall with his worker [I called him Michael Jackson and he was thrilled]. In spite of his brother perished in the quake and father with a broken leg and half the house damaged, he allowed us to stay on the top [flat-roof] floor and we slept in UNHCR tents.
I sure miss these children and hope that they are well.
