The sun hiding behind a bat-shaped cloud, emitting rays of hope. Underneath, a smiley-faced girl sits atop her brother's shoulders chest deep in an azure pool. 7th birthday is a good one.
Village road being overtaken by jungle. Puddles reach across with vines and fallen debris. Street lights long abandoned standing in the background, now silently watching , thinking about the economy.
Light-duty pickup overloaded with human labor strains into traffic ahead of hurrying commuters. Motor bikers swerve to avoid rear-ending. Teenager turns and shakes angry fist as he passes on right. Front wheel wobbles out of control. Collective gasps. He recovers.
Green behind green behind green. Green-treed hills behind a green rice paddy behind green viney jungle behind a rows of green pineapple plants.
