Intrinsically Sa Pa

I took this photo in Sa Pa, in the Lào Cai Province, during my semester abroad in Vietnam. A few friends and I decided to book a tour with a local guide to walk through some of the villages in and around Sa Pa, where we came across this group of children, in their traditional, colorful garments. They were preoccupying their time by digging into the hillside with their barehands, eager to invite only our eyes to join them. This was one of my most beloved memories during my time in Vietnam; we left with six waves of the hand, along with six enormous smiles.
