The Grandmother:

Of course I would want to take her photograph, she seemed to be thinking, as she waved me in and smiled for the camera. She was delighted with the image that I showed her.

Such spirit for one doing hard manual labour when the sun is still set high in the sky.

Lovely lady, she was. And, I am sure, a lovely grandmother and mother, too.

I guess she earns about $2 a day.
