Lake Taal, Philippines
this little girl was deaf and mute
the people in the village told me she was an orphan and her parents had been killed, which was followed by a very clear “cutting of the neck” gesture by her
I bought her a pancake, sat in silence, while she giggled and ate it
I wish I knew more sign language
