World Cup distraction
Shalanda Cesar, age 10, watches the final World Cup match. Shalanda and nine family members live in this one room shelter made from tin. Their home collapsed in the January earthquake and they lost all of their possessions. Shalanda's mother, Natasha Adrien, worked moving rubble to save up to buy their TV in order to watch the World Cup games. Adrien says, "having the TV to watch World Cup games takes our stress away."
I had fun today hanging out with people watching the World Cup. I had an assignment from a French magazine that had photographers shoot people watching the final match of the World Cup in twenty countries.
