At an orphanage in Arequipa, Peru. This little guy blatantly refused to allow the visiting dental team to administer any form of dental anesthesia. He was the only child out of 20+ kids who was not sedated for dental treatment. When it was time to say goodbye everyone else got up to tell us what they wanted to be when they grew up. However, he decided to take a nap. ...He later claimed we wanted to be a fireman.

Location: Arequipa, Peru
