Kids, Ya Gotta Love Them

So here we are in Cuenca, Ecuador.  We’re staying at the Gran Colombia Hostel, up two flights of stairs.  Pretty nice place, which means it has real hot running water and a decent breakfast.  $12 USD per night, so it fits the budget.

I’m looking out the window, into the next door courtyard below.  There’s a little kid running around with a big plastic trashcan over her head and shoulders.  A big one, like what you put at curb-side.  She can’t see a thing and is stumbling all around.

It reminded me of the Gregory Peck movie, To Kill a Mockingbird, where the little girl Scout is wearing a full-body paper mache costume for a school play (that’s supposed to be a ham), and is then running into things on the way home at night.

But I digress, this little girl down in the courtyard kept roaming around in circles, lost in her own world.  Joel and I watched her for about five minutes and couldn’t stop laughing.  What was going through her head I wonder.  Kids can be really weird.
