Tonle Sap, Cambodia
They lived in a shanty around Tonle Sap lake.
They only knew one English phrase: “One dollar, please”.
I looked at their gestures and they seemed to signal two dollars instead.
My mind-set funneled my interpretation towards the materialistic nature of man.
I couldn’t take a good picture unless I changed my way of thinking.
I stepped back and saw a different sign: PEACE!
With a smile on my face, I pored over my backpack and took 2 dollars,
a pack of chocolates and some pens
and peacefully handed them over to their waiting hands.
