It takes a village to raise a child

What do you see in this picture?  Two women, friends maybe, with identically-dressed babies?  Wrong.  Instead, a mother of twins boards a bus in Mendoza, turns to the stranger sitting next to her and asks, “Can you hold this for a moment?”  as if she’s asking her to hold a bottle of water or her jacket while she puts her wallet away.  The mother did not reclaim her baby until 40 minutes later when she reached her destination.  Amazing.
