Yai Gong (Thai grandmother) in my host family seems pleased with the color on her fingertips. In the first month on site i was often with her as the family went out to pick chili. She liked me, although I knew she couldn't quite figure out who I was or what I was doing there. One day she looked at the color on my nails and I decided to give her a manicure. Soaking her hands, applying hand lotion, each step she not only allowed, but 'took in' the process. I love this picture. It captures her joy of being pampered and delight with the pink polish on her nails.
