Okay, so maybe it was the photo of the painted goat that first caught our eye. (After all, we are "Goats and Soda").
But there are many other gems from the National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest.
The judges looked at 18,000 photographs and picked the top ten. Many of the photos — the winners and other submissions — focus on places that we cover in this blog, countries that are part of what's known as the "developing world" or the "low-and-middle income world." As the images show, those adjectives are far too limiting.
