Ancient DNA, Fresh Faces

Two young women at an Ethiopian cultural festival in Denver smile for the camera.

Most of the kids at the festival were so eager to play with my Border Collies (who were with me) but hesitant to approach them. The three dogs are so placid but the kids would ask me "Are they going to bite me?" Once we had disposed of the introductions and reassured them everything was okay I couldn't get the dogs away from the packs of kids climbing over them.
