Photographer's Note

Sur le chemin de l'école, les enfants de Kanpetlet avaient fait une rencontre étrange.
Un homme plus grand et plus blanc.
Un homme qui ne semblait pas connaitre les sentiers de montagne et qui n'avait même pas les mêmes vêtements que leurs parents.
Ils avaient essayé de vaincre leurs peurs, de venir le toucher et même de lui donner la main.
Mais l'homme ne semblait rien comprendre.
Il ne savait que sourire et faire des gestes maladroits.
Les enfants n'avaient pas très bien compris, mais ils avaient bien rigolé.
Ils allaient s'en souvenir.
Et l'homme aussi ...

****

On the way to school, the children of Kanpetlet had made a strange meeting.
A man larger and more white.
A man who did not seem to know the mountain lanes and who did not even have same clothing as their parents.
They had tried to overcome their fears, to come to touch him and to even give him the hand.
But the man seemed to understand nothing.
He could only smile and be awkward gestures.
The children had not understood very well, but they had laughed so much.
They will ever remember this event.
And the man too
