Hide and seek in rural Cambodia

As it often happens in Cambodia, people's shop and house are normally the same thing. This kid's family was selling carved silver in various shapes. Not being too interested in jewelry, I ended up in the back of the shop/house instead, making friends with two young kids and their skinny cat. The two siblings could not be more different: the one in the picture was laughing all the time and tried to engage me in a very basic hide and seek, the other was a very serious girl, whose dark eyes seemed to look at as with judgement.
