Once upon a time, in the far away mountainous region of Northern Argentina, a group of nomads decided to form a small town at the bottom of the hills.
These surrounding hills looked just like any other unimpressive mountains – dull, with no colours. “Boooring!” said the creative and imaginative children of the town. This is unacceptable to them and they complained to the adults. What is life without colours?
Their pleas to the adults fell on deaf ears. To the adults who had lost passion in life and hated their 9-5 day jobs, it was normal and something to ‘get used to’.
“Go do your homework!” the adults snapped, as they continued binge watching their boring TV and munching on Andean Potato Chips.
What happens when you ignore kids and tell them to do their homework? They rebel, of course! These kids formulated a plan to decorate the hills.
The Hill of the Seven Colours
Like how God created the world in 7 days, these kids decided to paint the hillside for 7 nights. Each night, they disappeared from their beds – while the adults were asleep – and snuck out with their magical paintbrushes and let their imagination let loose.
The kids made sure to return to bed before the adults woke up. And each morning, the adults woke up with a surprise: the hill had a new colour. This happened for 6 days straight until the final day when they woke up slightly earlier than usual and realized that the kids were missing.
They panicked and looked everywhere in town but could not find the children. What neglectful parents!
It was only when the kids skipped down the hillside, laughing happily and playing heartily, that the adults realized that the hill is covered with seven different colours, painted by their very own children.
