Children of Palembang

In Palembang, Sumatra. I walk around the city for about for hours, getting lost only to be found again. During that time, I didn’t see one single tourist, one single westerner. Everybody stopped and looked, intrigued but also showing their best smiles and saying hello. Sometimes they were shy, sometimes they stopped and chatted. The children though, they can’t lie… Every single one of them approached and spoke to me and I was even invited to play a decisive football match. And a new nickname… It’s amazing how children can find everything in so few…

“Hello Mr.!”
