That's was it. Next month I'm in P.P. and will take pictures on the same place where I took some pictures in 2005. Than you can see the different 13 years later.

It would be great if you could track down those kids and give them a copy of their photo. shouldn't be too hard to do, they are probably still wearing those same clothes .

Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Great idea.

Would be nice if @John Bingham could do similar with some of his early photos.

used to photograph at the dump regularly back in '08 and would take photos back to the kids.Also many of the kids in PP i have shot over the years as they grew up yet pretty much remained inn the same area
have done it numerous times in some remote villages in northern thailand i have visited often over the years as well
