Hmong Girl in Mae Hong Son

Kasma took this picture of a young Hmong girl in January and this young girl is dressed up in her New Year’s finery. (The Hmong celebrate their New Year according to the lunar calendar).

Recently looking at the Index of Wednesday Photos I realized that I’ve not really posted enough pictures of the people of Thailand, perhaps the best thing about the country. Every year Kasma takes her small-group trips to several hill-tribe villages, choosing villages that are not 100% dependent on tourism.

Hmong Father & Son

One year Kasma and I took a trip up to the Mae Sa Valley in-between two of her trips to attend the Hmong New Year’s celebration, which is celebrated according to the lunar calendar. All the Hmong villages in the area (at that time I believe there were eight) come together to one village, everyone dressed up in their very best attire.

Both men and women Hmong love children. I like this picture of father and son, both dressed up in all their finery.
