SMILING – THE UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE
Smiling really is contagious. When seeing someone smile, mirror neurones will stimulate a sensation inside your mind associated with smiling, causing you to smile yourself – as well as experiencing the emotion associated with smiling, joy! So it is no wonder that we are often drawn to children when we travel – more often than not, they will be smiling and laughing. We were looking through photographs from a trip we made to the Solomon Islands back in 2009, and found this one of a young boy on Simbo Island in the Western Province. Can you imagine meeting him and not returning his smile?
