The railway attendant and the mute boy

The boy and the Railway attendant

Place : Between Hoi Ann and Hue, Central Vietnam

Took a private car from Hoi Ann to Hue. Briefly followed the train tracks along one of the more beautiful sights (but not really photogenic) of Central Vietnam. We stopped at one of the train crossings, witnessing the passing train from Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi. Strangely in the middle of no where, there was this red hut with a train attendant and a few boys. This very friendly boy kept gesturing me to take his photos I later realised he was mute as he would make only grunts. The train attendant quite disinterested went about reading his newspaper.
