Bajau Kid on Boat
Bajau people refer to several Austronesian ethnic groups of Maritime Southeast Asia with their origins from the southern Philippines. They live a seaborne lifestyle, and generally build their homes on stilts in the sea. This is a photo of a Bajau child in her village, rowing a boat. The water is waist deep and crystal clear. Bajau people have little to live by, but what a paradise they live in.
