The ethnic of Bajo, they build their house, super market and the gas station, temple...everything in the ocean. They were the happiest, and the hippiest peoples in South East Asian ocean area without having any land (so no nationality as well), before their government gave an "educational opportunity" for their children. That small path made by beautiful coral is the gate way to school and also the bridge between LAND-world and SEA-world for them. According to bajo kids, their teachers from LAND-world teach "how to count the number" to them, but none of the teachers can tell them, "how to count the stars in the sky", "how to count birds and fishes in the ocean?" like their father and mother fish does ■
