Bamboo Train Kid

I really like this photo. The kid pictured was my tour guide in this tiny village.  The bamboo train cost about $10 to ride and it took me to a small village with a brick factory. When I rode the train I was the only foreigner around.  When I arrived to the village the little boy greeted me and took me around.  Later I sat at a table and he served me beer.  I didn’t even feel like beer but drank it cause it was all they had and the least I could do was buy a couple from them.  I hung out with him, his siblings and his mother for about an hour.  No one spoke English but we didn’t have trouble communicating and interacting. Since I was in the middle of nowhere and isolated from everything that was familiar to me, I was out of my element though it was a wonderful and fulfilling experience.  It truly spoke to the power of human connection and understanding.  It was an amazing and unforgettable afternoon among the rice field and palm trees of Cambodia.
