The power of sharing and smiles

The beauty of living and being with Indonesian people, is sharing, the smile which never lacking and that contagious you.

Share lunch with people
Whenever you're in some village, the coming to the table and invite all to eat together becomes a time of celebration (usually leave their guests eat and then if there's anything left divide it between them).

Anyway in any house you enter, you have to willingly accept what you offer is their way to welcome you and take you respect.

And if you're lucky enough to hand them something, it becomes a magical moment and then rush to the village a lot of children that you are reaching out and smile at you.

Too bad sometimes not all have to, but they're happy anyway and share that gift with others.
