Long Neck Karen Hill Tribe

This lady was the first to catch my attention during my adventure at the Long Neck Karen Hill Village in Chiang Dao.

She could speak minimum Chinese, enough to sell her tribe's handmade goods. For that, I bought a Turquoise Stone Necklace, which was almost as heavy as my camera!
Price? 100 Baht = RM10.

The village is surrounded by natural flora and fauna, primitive resources and "machines" to prepare food for the family. Two little boys were following us through our walk around the hill.

This scene made me smile.
