    I bought this with the understanding that it was a "Children in ghetto" photo for twenty-five dollars, a BIG splurge for a nineteen year old college student.

    Now, it really looks like that, but someone pointed out to me that the sleeve in the corner is a GI patch. Those kids look pretty hungry, however and there is a fence. Anyone know what is happening in this photo, past two hungry kids trying to sell a GI something? Like, the situation?

    Hi, I really think you have answered this question yourself. To me, it looks like a US Army camp with locals outside seeing what they could sell to or scrounge from the GI's.

    Cheers, Ade.
