We came across this young child beggar, hiding behind the ancient walls of a famous temple complex, at the most popular tourist spot we visited. It was late afternoon, and most visitors had left the site. The little girl was sitting by the walls of one of the gates, holding her arms above her head, and kept looking outside the gate. I asked her questions that she did not respond to, except the one "what is your name?" ... then she said "Nei". We went back the next day only to look for her, but she was no longer there.

Location: Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, Cambodia
