Photographer's Note

The surrounding of Sapa is such a treasure of culture and beauty. While trekking through the mountains, I came across this rural scene which left me - once more - in awe for the strength of people.
This woman from the Red Dzao tribe is driving her buffalo that carries some tree trunks down the mountain. Quite a tricky task as they were at least a few meters long. I felt very privileged to see how different these people's life is from ours; they have so much to admire and to learn from. I hope their culture will remain protected as it is invaluable to the world and it catapults you straight back in time.
