Yadanasemi Pagoda complex, Inwa (Ava), Myanmar – When we arrived at the pagoda, we found out the little girl in pink dress had been crying earlier because she hadn’t been able to sell any postcard the whole day. It was around USD $3 for a set so we bought it from her. Seeing that sweet smile on her face, that $3 was so well-spent. Later on, when I was taking a break another little boy approached me selling postcards again. I declined and slowly pulled out a pack of gum for myself. His eyes lit up and said, “One, for me?” I gave him a piece of chewing gum, and I don’t even have words to describe how happy he was! He hopped away to see his friends with the biggest smile on his face. PRICELESS.
