Left behind

In February /March 2014, I took a month off and went to work as a photographer/videographer in an orphan school in the poorest neighborhood in Mombasa, Kenya. These 2 guitars were left behind by an funny asian guy that used to work there as a teacher. He was playing the guitar every night. They loved the instrument but sadly no one knew how to play it. On a special occasions guitars were taken out so the kids can play with them. Eileen told me she misses him and his music...
