Hmong Girl (Wednesday Photo)

Hmong Girl in Mae Hong Son

Hmong Girl

Hmong girl in finery

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. When Kasma was leading tours to Thailand, she would take her small-group trips to several hill-tribe villages, choosing villages that were not 100% dependent on tourism.

The Wednesday Photo is a new picture each week highlighting something of interest in Thailand. Click on the picture to see a larger version.
