Pulau Bunaken, Sulawesi, Indonesia

I was walking on the beach at low tide. It was lunch time, children were coming back from school. A little kid followed me on the beach. He saw me picking shells and started to pick shells for me – so many I was not able to carry anymore ! A second little boy joined him, his hand full of small starfishes still alive. “Bintang, bintang !” (star) he shouted excitedly.
