I would like to share two photos that went viral on Monday in Chinese social media.
The photo shows one eight years old boy’s dirty and swollen hands on his school exam paper, he got 99/100. He lives in a poor, remote rural village in China with his sister and his grandma. His father is a migrant worker who works in a big city. The boy walks 4.5 km to get to school from his home. It takes him about more than one hour.
This week Weekly Photo Challenge is Weathered. I am thinking of this image.
His hair and eyebrows were covered with frost after the long walk to school in freezing temperature. The day the photo was taken the temperature was -9 degree Celsius.
