Thanks again, not for restoring my faith in the innate goodness/kindness in humanity, but for reinforcing it.

for #15, I was in Guatemala myself, and all girls act that way towards any foreigner. we had girls of all ages hitting on every male in our group in the hopes that they will be taken out of poverty. it's not exactly faith-restoring.

everything else, though, is great.

I must be getting cold and insensitive, but only the ones with animals made any impact.

The baby and the cat is just a cutesy photo... not faith in humanity restored.
