My husband, Andy, and I live in Baltimore. This picture was taken on our honeymoon in Peru last December. We were on the Hiram Bingham train from Cuzco to Aguas Calientes (the town at the foot of Machu Picchu). We went to the observation car at the rear of the train after a brief stop and saw this young boy trying to "catch" the train as it left the station. His smile and dogged determination made for a warm feeling and a good picture.
