The Smiles of Indonesia

One thing that every visitor seems to notice right away when traveling around Indonesia is the friendly faces and quick smiles that are so prevalent among Indonesians. Recently, I have traveled to several different areas of Indonesia and of course found that the kids in far flung villages are always so happy to see tourists visiting their homes. Although seemingly shyer than most kids I have encountered in other areas of Indonesia, these kids in a village outside of Biak in Papua province eventually warmed up to the camera and loved to pose in groups for a few fun photos.
