It had been a particularly hot day and we were glad to reach the hotel. More pleasing was the fact the hotel had a pool and soon our kids were down there cooling off.
Our eldest daughter, aged four at the time, found a playmate and the two girls seemed to be happy to splash about and engage in four-year-old conversation.
I think it was the first time my daughter had encountered a child of colour.
I was fascinated to watch them play and it was a beautiful sight to watch them playing as if old friends.
It was after when I asked her if she enjoyed the pool time that she said it had been great and could she go there again tomorrow.
I asked her about her friend and if she noticed anything different about her.
Yes she said, her friend had a heap of ribbons in her hair and could she ask mummy to do the same to her hair.
