Greeted with Smile, by Ryszard Wierzbicki

This is another photography from my Palawan Island exploration in November 2016. When my friend Paul was playing with Kids and his newly purchased drone equipment on the beach, I made a walk around surrounding fishermen village. I was greeted with smiles and interest by small villagers. The kindness and hospitality among local community is very impressing.
