This is our entry in Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: March 26, 2017.
This photo was taken in the schoolyard of a preschool in Ta Van, near Sa Pa, Vietnam. After a simple breakfast in their classroom, the children were lining up for early morning exercises led by their teacher. The little girl whose shoes say “Yes” and “No” cannot speak or read English or Vietnamese; she speaks only her local dialect. She is quite color coordinated (for someone under six years old) and her socks match each other, unlike those of the children around her. The most popular shoes we saw in the area, worn by all ages, are the tan slip-ons.
