Toqrah is situated 100 km away from Benghazi on the way to Al-Marj city and Al Baida city in Libya. This is where I stay also in Libya. Toqrah is an old village having ruins from Romans then Ottomans and Italians. The condition of ruins and museum is not so good infact but there is an interesting castle like building in the ruins. The village have a very big water problem and all usage water is extremely salty. At the suborbs of village there are very old houses probably from Italians. They are now occupied by Egyptians, Sudanese and other African refugees or workers. They are living in a very bad situation but what I see is they are not so unhappy with that. I think if you do not see the good life in all your life you do not miss it. These children were one of these African families. I saw then on the way back home from the old museum in Toqrah castle. They were wearing very colorful clothes and especially I like the cute boy with a puzzled look.

Nice shot Ebru. It is a bit noisy, but you could get rid of some of that with the PS despeckle filter.
You might try to crop the green trees in the upper left out to just below the roof supports to see how you like it. I think it would make a good composition stronger.
