Sad Girl from Sapa Vietnam | Travel Tuesdays

I stumbled upon this sad little face while hiking through the rice patties in Sapa, Vietnam. Her dirty, tear-smeared face and the wonderful, challenging look she gave me in the late golden sunshine was simply priceless. I’m not sure why she was so sad, her parents were near by working the fields, but I reached into my bag and found a packet of crumbled up cookies which she quickly snatched from my hands and ran off. It’s sometimes really cool communicating without ever saying a word.
