How do kids in this remote island play?
Then there was that time this little angel and an older one attempt to toss or ditch the poor thing, the crab I mean, unto the muddy waters. Kawawang crab, but I guess we all learn about life and death, and cruelty to living things when we get to be of school age, and/or when those things become scarce. Ah, such innocence! I had fun watching these kids at play!
One adult told me that when parents call them to lunch, these kids rush to the sea (wharf/beach area) for a final play, then take baths with fresh water at their homes so they are clean at meal time. Now that, I say, is THE life!
Did you notice there were no girls in the video? I asked that manong tending to his fishing lines where the female kids are, if any! He told me that if they’re not at home with some chores, they usually play indoors and do whatever girly things as none of them want to get dark. Well, same as everywhere else in this country!
