When we were in Vietnam we drove by a group of school boys who were sand sledding. I asked our driver to stop so we could get out of our van and watch them. The boys had these burlap bags and they were using them like sleds to slide down the sand hills by their school. The boys thought is was funny that I was so interested in what they were doing and when I started taking photos they offered to pose for me. I had Dave take a picture of me with some of them and while we were doing that the principal came out of the school and walked over to see what was going on. Our guide explained that I was a teacher from Canada and I was just interested in the children and the game they were playing. Some of the boys were wearing the uniform of the Young Pioneers a communist organization for young people. I loved the delight on the boys’ faces and the way they were having so much fun with something so simple.
