Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

I had to put some thought into how to interpret “Foreign”. There are so many things that come to mind, but this picture was the one that kept coming back to me.

As with most islands, tourism is the primary means of income, so outside of the tourism realm, they tend to be very poor areas. During one of our visits, these two children were playing outside. What struck me was how they entertained themselves. A bucket top and a stick was all that was used, and the game was to see how long you can keep the top rolling only using a stick. The boy was demonstrating to the group of tourists, very excitedly might I add, and the little sister was following behind.

Living in the United States, the idea of kids today “coming up” with something to do for entertainment is “foreign”.
