The Children Of Raja Ampat, West Papua.
The remote area of Raja Ampat is home to one of the most amazing aquamarine life in the world. But there is more to this are. The children of Raja Ampat don’t see foreigners very often and we were lucky to meet a couple of them.
It is wonderful to see these children happy and active, even though they don’t have a lot. No Playstation, no Game Boy or Computer. Nature & people are still one.
The kids are always the most curious about foreign visitor. If you arrive in very remote villages in Western Papua Islands, you get the attention of the whole village, but especially the kids will follow you step by step. They notice every move you make and they will try to entertain you with jumps and handstands.
Beautiful skin and beautiful eyes; The people of Irian Jaya are a special race, a bit Asian a bit Melanesian and a bit African.
