I took this precious shot while visiting the fishing village of Jang, Indonesia which is located an hour and forty-five minute boat ride from the city of Batam. I was humbled by the honest happiness of the people. They were eager to visit with strangers walking through their modest village. The village consists of a community solely dependent on fishing and boat building and, as you can imagine, is quite poor. You wouldn’t know it by the people who all wore genuine smiles and happily greeted us while we strolled their town.
