When I came across this story, I wanted to skip the writing and go straight to the little images at the bottom of the page. And so I did. But when I opened the photographs they captured my curiosity so much so that I had to read the text to understand the meaning of them. Then I found myself wanting to skip paragraphs of the text to get to the meaning as quickly as possible, but each time I skipped a paragraph it didn’t make sense so I found myself going back where I left off and reading through. It was worth it (and proved to me once again how impatient I am). And now I have read and viewed the images many many times, completely enchanted by the author’s experience. I would be in disbelief that there lived a girl this beautiful in such a place, except for the fact I have heard many similar encounters time and time again from friends who have traveled to this incredible country.
