in a remote village in Northern Vietnam. I snapped this picture north of the village Sapa Vietnam which is one of the poorest but most beautiful regions of Vietnam. This little girl who is probably no more than 5 years of age is carrying and caring for her young brother while her parents work in the rice fields. They came down from their hut to meet us because we brought a few small candies for them to eat. The girl and boy had never tasted candy before and they were delighted with the small candies we gave them. The trip was heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. They had so little but treated every small gift as something amazing. While it seemed like I had so much compared to them, I realized when I was there that I had very little compared to them. They had learned to appreciate each other and their families as cherished possessions while I had been taught to cherish material things. It was a moment where I think we all had reason to envy each other. What an eye opening and life changing experience it was for me.
