It’s fascinating to see kids at play; especially in societies where those kids cannot afford XBoxes or other modern amenities. It’s most interesting to note that to a child, their “work” is play. And what kids most want to play at is being all grown up, like their parents. I mean, what girl doesn’t think her mother is the most beautiful woman in the world, or her father the strongest, tallest, most handsome man in the world. And what boy doesn’t want to be just like his father and do “grown up things”.
These children are taking advantage of some rain and a work crew leaving tools out during a break, to form their own company of street workers. In a country where roads and houses are made from mud and clay, working with mud and clay is a major portion of industry, and these enterprising young people are practicing for the day when they can help support their families through the sweat of their brows, doing honest work.
And of course, for every crew of street workers, there needs to be a supervisor to keep an eye on things.
