Postcards 4U: Innocence

Dear U,

At the start of our jungle trek near Phonxali, Laos. Our guide brought us to a small wooden house where he bought some lao-lao (Laotian rice whisky), there was a group of boys playing at the back of a beat-up truck; the youngest of them have this very easy disposition and a beautiful smile. Each time we took a picture of them/him and showed it to him, he would just crack up laughing uncontrollably. It’s wonderful to see such innocence in a remote setting otherwise plagued by poverty.  It makes me wonder whether we “modern” and “urban” people have had it all wrong.

Wish you were here,

Noel

This kid was funny. He cracked up everytime so hard, just like it was the first time he had seen his picture.
