This picture was taken in the Maliana, approximately 170Km southwest from the capital, Dili. I captured this woman selling betel leaves in the town market. A country that is extremely impoverished and devastated, I discovered a people who are extremely generous with their warmth and love.

Have seen Betel on photos from other countries, but never sawa the actual leaves -- and you have really gotten great detail of them here, along with the woman, the wonderful blue and red and green colors, and the effective framing and POV, -- Ellie
