At Peace In The Dump

Today was my 4th day in the dump. I handed out food donation bags numbers 7 and 8. I also started distributing the colour digital photos I have been making. The acceptance level of my presence is much higher now. Those that once regarded me with suspicion and sourness now often smile and greet me as I arrive and say good bye when I leave. I am at peace in the dump now, I feel comfortable  happy to shoot there. Hopefully there will be no more spurting red liquid, nails, cockroach hat or helicopter gunship moments.
Note* I have 14 more hats left to give out in this first group. I plan on taking 4 or 5 with me to Mae La refugee camp.
