0622 Hardship with a spirit

I met this boy during my trip from Liziang to Shangri La, just outside an old temple.
My wife and friends went shopping and I was walking around in the little town, trying to meet up with the locals.
I got invited for tea ( it happened many times to me in China, Chinese people very much like to welcome foreigners into their humble homes ), when I came out, I met this little boy, who appeared very poor, dirty, with more marks in his face than the number of years he is old.
Despite all, he showed a very positive spirit. I will keep this image forever
