It's 6 in the morning at the floating market, just after sunrise. A little boy on a small boat is still sleepy. Often street vendors take their children on their boats ... perhaps they would prefer to sleep a little longer, perhaps they would prefer to play, because this is what they are supposed to do at that age.
A pupil who is coming back from school to her small village near the tea fields. The bag is almost the same size of her... probably was own by another member of her family, much bigger than her. Kids also used to walk in bare foot, shoes are a luxury for fews.
This is a small and remote village in the forest near Mae Hong Son. Here people live a very simple life and technology didn't take place yet.. The kid is looking skeptical at this smartphone. An australian girl is showing a picture of him taken with this modern mobile. Probably the little boy have never seen a picture of himself before
Through the the alleys of the downtown, A little girl plays with her bicycle among the cows that are relaxing or eating around the streets of the city. This a normal scene of indian kids daily life.
A young girl on the ferry to the Hon Tre island. On her mother's arms and leaning over the window, she stares fascinated at the sea... probably her first boat trip.
A bunch of kids who play together in a small village near the tea fields in Sreemangal. They looked like a small gang that rule all the neighbourhood. Play together is always much more fun. Screw the TV and videogames... these kids haven't been contaminated by this lethal virus called progress.. not yet.
Here we are in Allapey, where kids used to travel everyday on the boat through the canals to go to school.
A group ok kids in a tiny village of huts in a remote area not far from Mae Hong Son. Here the main pasttime for the them, is playing football on a small and rough field all day long. Kids are enjoying the essence of this sport... perhaps not even knowing the existance of videogames.
