    En terecht ! Dat je gewonnen hebt. Zeker met dit soort foto\'s en verhalen. Je brengt de mooiste dingen van de wereld gewoon bij de mensen thuis. Gefeliciteerd en ga vooral zo door. :-) (even niet in het engels , want dit is een spontane reactie)

The story behind "Happy kids in Tibet"

We were actually on a sheep catching trip, to resupply the Everest expedition, when these kids came to us. Jumping and making the peace sign (and many variations on it :)

They showed amazing joy, while being stuck in this dusty place without cars full of toys & clean clothes, just each other to play with.

By the way, ExposedPlanet has won the first Travvie award for Best Photography on a Travel Blog. Thanks a million everybody who voted for ExposedPlanet on the Travvies!
