2013, Day 93 - Grin and bear it

I smile every time I look at this picture.  On our way back from an excursion outside of Phnom Penh we stopped in a small village are their market area.  School has just gotten out and there were children everywhere.  As the walked or rode past on their bikes most called out greetings to practice their English.  When we responded they started to laugh.

When we stopped at this particular stall to examine their fruits Mom grabbed her son and made him pose for us in front of her wares.  It was really funny, you could tell he was embarrassed but Mom was so proud.  I took his picture, showed it to him, and we both laughed.  That's what I love about travel, even with a language barrier you can still have fun and relate because, despite cultural differences, we're fundamentally the same.
