TITLE: "Children Happy Play 1"
Bajau people refer to several Austronesian ethnic groups of Maritime Southeast Asia. They live a seaborne lifestyle, and generally build their homes on stilts in the sea in east Malaysia and Philippines. Though lacking in modern day comforts, Bajau people are a jovial lot. This is a photo of Bajau children using their natural environment as a playground.
