Maxim and Remy Vallerand-Parisi took KidsPost to a moonlike area of Namibia. (Family photo)

Where will your summer travels take you?

Whether it’s to the neighborhood pool or someplace exotic, such as the southern African nation of Namibia, we want you to take KidsPost with you and then have someone take your picture. Brothers Maxim Vallerand-Parisi, 9, and Remy Vallerand-Parisi, 14, traveled all the way from their home in Alexandria to the eerie (but very cool) “moon landscape” area of Namibia. This rocky desert was formed as long as 500 million years ago.

Once you’ve had someone take your picture, have a parent or guardian send the photo as a “.jpg” attachment to kidspost@
. (Put “Summer of KidsPost” in the subject line.). You can also mail a photo to Summer of KidsPost, The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071. Include the full name, age and home town of everyone in the photo. Include a sentence of two about what made your trip special. We’ll publish photographs in KidsPost and at
