Photographer's Note

ah, to have the life of one of these Akha babies. not too bad, probably...

The Akha hill tribe usually live high up in the hills and they traditionally grew a lot of opium, though in Thailand this has been replaced by coffee, at least in the area i visited. a really nice coffee, too. This village had a magnificent hilltop view and I snapped this picture at sunset while the local women were busy setting up stalls of their handicrafts. They make beautiful things using seeds, beads, metal coins and embroidery.
