Those of you who get email updates may get this twice. Apologies if that happens (since I did say I wouldn’t spam you). The first one was a draft published by mistake. Hopefully it won’t happen again.
Continuing this week’s informal theme of cute Asian kids, this boy looked like he just stepped out of the Jungle Book movie. He was part of a group of boys, and a few girls, who were dressed up in grass skirts and head pieces and slathered in mud. They were participating in one of the many parades and processions that occurred last week in Marinduque, Philippines for the Holy Week celebration. It was never clear to me how this particular costume theme fit in with the overall theme of the parade and celebration, but no matter.
