Photographer's Note

Another photo from Khorog City Park you've already seen in my last post.

In Tajikistan, I was fascinated with schoolgirls' uniforms. They all wear Tajikistan-flag-coloured scarves and these amazing pompoms at the end of their plaits. I tried to take a few photos, at least some record shots from the hip, to then show them at home. But these two girls approached me for photos and conversation. I first thought they wanted to practise their English but as soon as they found out I spoke Russian, the one on the left exclaimed: "Oh, why didn't you tell us from the very start!". They seemingly loved to just talk to a foreigner, showered me with questions about my country, my family and travels. Most answers I gave met with great enthusiasm but they were disappointed to hear that I had never been to the USA.

Same age, same uniforms but I'm sure you can see two different characters, like in this photo by Gert. What will they be like when they grow up?

Two more people encounters from Khorog park in WS.
