The Smile of Bali (Portraits of Indonesia)
At the market in Ubud, Bali I met this woman. And suddenly there was the Bali phenomenon - without any reason she smiled at me. It's an honest smile, not the "please buy something at my stall" smile. It happens quite often in Bali - complete strangers smile at each other.

"The smile you send out will be returned to you?"
Fascinating, how even old people become (stay?) beautiful through a smile like that.
