Plush Lives

When I arrive early to pick up the girls from school, I park a short distance from the school in the nearest bit of shade. Yesterday as I was waiting in the shade I watched as a father and his daughter walked up a few meters in front of where I was parked and began sifting through a pile of rubble. As I walked past to go get my girls I asked the father what they were looking for. He showed me the small rusty bits of metal that they were searching for. As I returned with my girls I asked the father if I could take a foto. He agreed and I took 2 fotos. He didn't ask for anything but I gave him $100 pesos (about $10 US) and the girls and I headed off to our car and our very plush lives.
