I can run free here. I can go back to being a kid.
- Thank you @ello for creating something special.
This little gaffer kept following me around for several hours while hanging out in a fishing village in Malaysia. The village itself was built for refugees of Cambodia because of the Cambodian Civil War. Not the cleanest blighted area in the world but the people were happy there. The boy just watched while all of his friends danced around like idiots for the camera. He was very curious and outlasted all of the boys following me out of the shanty town. I was SO interested in his life, how he lived, his parents, what he ate and I'm sure he was thinking the same about me. He didn't speak though. Not one word. I gave him some cash, I didn't know what else I could do... It wasn't a huge amount, just enough to say thanks for hanging out and good luck.
