This is pretty interesting. I was just going back through the photos from this trip (as well as scanning in some more) and this is the next frame taken after this shot. If you check out that shot you'll see in the background a small kid carrying a large bag and some taller girls looking at him.
Now we can tell that the girl on the right was saying, hey, give me that bag I'll carry it for you. In this frame she is carrying his bag while he is protesting -- c'mon let me at least carry your bag!
I think this shot helps renew ones faith that there are some nice qualities of human nature.

A very nice capture Mike. The same dynamism as the previous shot. I love the different expression on each of the kids.
Either it is what you have described or it is a match to see who is the strongest :)

A cheerful capture Mike! The shoe at the bottom that reveals motion, the girl in the middle who seems to carry all three bags now... And your note that reveals honest emotion. Thanks for sharing this.

A fine shot without knowing the background. But once you point out the human kindness behind it, it becomes 300% better. Thanks for pointing this out and for a great shot!
