These Akha women were busy setting up tables of their handicrafts to sell to the small group of people I was trekking with. The Akha women make beautiful belts, bracelets, and purses out of beads, metal pieces, and natural seeds. This can make it hard on a girl who likes to shop when she's trekking and has so little extra space in her pack ;)
you can see some of the belts hanging over the corner of the table there.
