Children smiling at Batu Caves, Malaysia

Rocky-kids-at-Mundan-Batu-Caves

This photo was taken at Batu Caves near Kuala Lumpur. We had just witnessed the Hindu ritual of mundan, where a two-month old boy had his head shaved. The boy was the little brother and cousin of these children who were quite hepped up about the whole thing. Since we are from Philadelphia we are traveling around the world with a Rocky statue which the kids were excited to pose with. You can read about the ceremony and watch a video of it at: http://www.changesinlongitude.com/mundan-hindu-head-shaving-ceremony-video/

Background information:

Larissa and Michael Milne have sold everything and are traveling around the world for a year. They have brought a bit of Philadelphia with them, a Rocky statue, which they will take photos of along the way. They are writing about the journey on their blog “Changes In Longitude” and for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
