Today as I was walking home with my pack shucked full of delicious fruit (yum!), I saw one of our little Burmese girls selling flowers on the street and she ran to give me a big hug, which always puts a huge smile on my face. I bought a string of jasmine from her, which she over charged me for, and halfway down the street I heard her call to me. She ran to me, pigtails flying, holding out 10bhat and saying "sorry". Small things like a 8yr old kid who as been working the street all day in the hot sun (lives in the slums) deciding for herself what is right, gives me hope! She got a 10bhat tip to buy some candy with for being honest.
