I have two sons: one 12, one 16. If I had the time I’m sure I could write for a day on the differences between life for a tween/teen in Zambia versus the life my children are lucky to live in Seattle. Instead of all those words, the top picture, of a playground sign in an all-boys secondary (middle + high) school in Mazabuka, Zambia is a powerful reminder that teenage risks in Zambia can carry a significantly higher cost.

WanderDad, Zambia 1969
Sometimes, for Photo Friday, I try to choose a photo which compliments the theme I’ve been following in my blog posts that week. Other times, a photo posted by another blogger participating in this fun weekly round-up of photos from all over the world influences my choice. And then there’s times when I find that I’ve been chasing my tail all week long and it’s all I can do to find just one decent photo to round out the week with some degree of finesse. I save the noteworthy photos from my (meager) collection for times like that.
I think this photo fits the bill: the WanderDad at not-quite-two, in rural Zambia with a mammoth snake. Stunning.
