Baby in Mukuru Informal Settlement

This is a pretty typical image of very young children in Mukuru and other informal settlements.  We were standing here for at least five minutes mapping electricity “poles” most of which are something like a broom handle only wider with covered copper or bare aluminum wires running in several directions. People who live here pay for this electricity. No adults came up to this baby while we were there to see what we up to, just a few children aged 4-6 who gathered around.  Children who mustered the courage to come up to me just kept touching my arm and whispering “mzungu.” It was quite a day!
