"Two friends and I decided to explore the island of Mencora by bicycle for fifteen days. We didn't have anywhere to stay, so we slept in coves, beaches, and sometimes in the street. It was an exhausting trip but we had some really incredible moments. There was nothing extraordinary about the moment this photograph was taken. It was simple: just endless hours jumping and giggling in the waves."
-Sara Costa Escobar
