She Sells Sea Shells

Malapascua Shell Vendor

Another day in the office.

I wish I was able to ask them questions. I want to know if they still go to school. If their parents send them to sell shells. If they like what they are doing. Local island life is not easy. Behind the beauty of the resorts are communities of locals trying to make it day by day. There is a gargantuan contrast to what the island offers to travelers with what the locals have to live with.
