Yet Another Niece

I took this photo of yet another niece, in a pensive moment. This was just before, I think, she was taken from the farm up on the plateau, to continue her education in the city. She is a girl who is not strong at school, yet shows some extraordinary interests and talents besides. I think she is yet to "find her groove". OBSERVATION: That cord behind her is a cell-phone charger that I installed. It runs off a solar panel, regulator, and gel battery. It was inevitable that cell-phones would come to the farm, and my set-up just made it a bit easier for people to charge them. But my father-in-law complained that cell-phones had ruined the traditional dynamics of communication. The elders were being sidelined.
