Weekly Photo Challenge: Jubilation

Inca Girl
Location: Cusco, Peru

Jubilation can be manifested in many ways.

In the case of the little girl waiting for the start of the parade in Cusco, Peru, the reaction was more restrained.

An unexpected gift of orange didn’t cause her to jump up and down.

But the look in her eyes and the way she held the fruit close to her mouth betrayed the emotions welling up deep inside her.

Ha Ha. I found it not only cute and funny but also reminded me of a similar situation when I was her age.

After her mother gestured to her as if it were a forbidden fruit, she handed it to her for safekeeping.

Needless to say, I lost tract of the little girl as the parade went on.

But there was something I did know. She enjoyed the taste of that orange much more because she held on to it a little bit longer.
