Their slight physical discomfort, nearly sacrilegious in the presence of such shockingly beautiful mountain terrain, shrinks as the rising...
  Their faces lit up with joy when they saw us walking into the schoolyard. Their cheers and gleeful laughter could be heard even in the upstairs room where we were eating breakfast.
