Sad lives, happy faces

Stunningly beautiful in parts, Lesotho is also one of the very poorest countries in the world and has what is said to be the world’s worst HIV/AIDS infection rates, all of which means there’s not all that much to smile about. Still, as this young Lesotho fellow showed us, a brilliant smile is enough to warm even the most bone-chilling of days.
(The blanketed man followed us around constantly but he was less a menace than a sad, albeit smiley, figure.)
