Photo and caption by Lena Konstantakou

Children are playing football in the streets of a small village in Pemba island, Africa. They reacted in a very cheerful way and started showing off when they heard I was from Greece and reminded them our victory in the 2004 UEFA European Football Championship.

Location: Pemba island, Africa (an island forming part of the Zanzibar Archipelago)
