In hot countries you often see young boys playing, especially where there is water. These girls had been swimming, they came out of the water to wave. It is rare to see girls playing, they normally get tasked with looking after younger siblings or with various chores around the house, whilst the boys seem to be allowed more playtime...very unfair.
