15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
I was a "kru" meaning teacher in Thailand for 3 weeks. The kids were so eager to learn, were eager to play and were eager to ask us about where we were from. I think the children is where I saw the tension of cultural hybridization the most. This is a photo of the hillside children we spoke to, who knew more about popular culture than I did.
