Language is no Barrier

We are still in Penang and when we sat by a local food stall, downing cold beer and people watching, a motorcycle pulled up.  A local man with his son riding pillion, food container in hand, got off, approached a vendor to place his takeaway order.  Meanwhile a foreign couple (French) with 2 children approached another vendor to enquire or place an order.  In less than a minute, 2 young boys became friends, laughing & playing without a language problem.

Who needs language to be friends?

Who needs language to be friends?

Parting was actually sad with some tears as they somehow became buddies in 20 minutes.  Language is no barrier in the beauty of children’s friendship and rapport.
