Day 9~ May 9th~ Cambodia


the snake charmer

In Cambodia, like in many other developing countries on our planet, children find themselves needing to sell things, beg, wash car windows or do a multiple of other tasks for some extra money that could mean a meal for the day. It is always heartbreaking to see, no matter what country I was in to see children subjected to life’s hardships at such a young age.

This little girl found another unique way to make a living, her own creative way. She became a snake charmer and she would let visitors to the floating village touch or go near her creature for a few coins. She had pride radiating from her and she knew she was just different. And she was!
