Like a modern Pied piper of Hamelin he leads the children astray with the irresistible promise of plenty of cool beer.
No, actually the bottle is inflatable and meant for a publicity stunt, and the children just happened to be there.
The picture is taken on Santo Antão island.

Fine capture even if it is not the real thing, not even 'probably beer' as some brewery adverties.

Nice catch...made me smile.
Return of favor.

very funny picture with the famous Portuguese beer.
The children for sure are returning from (or going to) school, as we see by the typical school clothes and stuff.

I visited four islands of Cape Verde and Ponta do Sol was and is still my favourite place there.Great shot with the pupils following the big beerbottle.Excellent POV and great sharpness overall.
We missed us for only about 2 weeks there,I arrived there at 15th of april last year...

great shot. I like the composition with the man in the foreground and the children in the back. The bottle thats towards the camera is also a nice addition. very well done.

Good morning, Gert,
Good title for this amazing scene, I see he knows this amazing situation. These clear children, decent houses and this "bottle of beer" said me Cape Verde is very quiet and comfortable African country, right? Thanks for so interesting report.

nice the snapshot with the native man to transfer a huge bottle of beer.The students behind him add a beautiful and charmy backdrop.
Excellent the light and the colour management of the image.
