Lollipop Smiles, by Ryszard Wierzbicki

On the way from Puerto Princesa to San Vincente on Palawan Island, Philippines I stopped by the river and visited a family farm who invited me for a fresh coconut. During my mate Paul Drzazga was exploring the riverside area with his drone I did several pictures of the family and their household. These kids with lollipop were very interested posing for my camera.
