This photo was a useful reminder to me of the value of carefully examining details.  It came among a large purchase of random photos, and I tended to overlook it as being comparatively unexciting.  But I finally took a closer look, and realized the license plate was probably legible if I enlarged it.  Sure enough, above the number, it reads “Ciudad de Concordia”, which is Spanish for City of Concordia.  The bias of my American perspective shows in the way it hadn’t crossed my mind that it might be foreign.  While there are towns called Concordia in Missouri and Kansas, the Spanish suggests that it is the city in Argentina.  My assumption, then, is that Argentina is the location of this photo and the nationality of its subjects.  I know nothing about cars, though, so despite its being licensed in Argentina, I don’t know where it’s originally from.  In any case, the children seem proud of it, and rightly so.  It’s a sleek, shiny beauty.
