This brought a smile to my face. I love how you treat the subject – and the boys – with humanity, and were treated with humanity in return (even in the neighborhood). I’ve lived in difficult cities and volunteered a little in slum schools and there’s this universal smile that I recognize coming through your story; underneath a tough surface and difficulties there is sense of humour and rough kindness. The flying peas are a wonderful detail :)
