Village Boys Playing With Firecrackers!

by - 8:08 AM


Back in the village, the Eid celebrations are still going on! Just round the corner from where I live, I caught these cheeky boys lighting firecrackers outside someone's home!!!! I remember walking through a bunch of kids playing with the firecrackers, I was so scared they'd throw one in my direction I yelled (to their amusement), 'Ceasefire, ceasefire!' Hahaha. It's driving me nuts because all day and late into the night, every few seconds (yes, I kid you not) you'd hear a ridiculously loud boom, your ears would ring, and you could almost imagine you were in a war zone!
