On an unexpectedly snowy day too cold for school, some of the Mavuka village kids bring their dolls outside—but only after having taken advantage of the lingering snow to throw some snowballs. Lesotho’s winter runs from May to September, but the highlands experience occasionally heavy snowfall even in the summer months of November and December. Due to the intense sun at this altitude, it is a rare treat when snow in the Drakensberg Range lasts a whole day, especially during spring and summer.
