we live at the base of a big mountain, and at the top there is a Hmong village where they sell things to tourists. Apart from a bit of agriculture it’s their only source of income. So we spent $1.50 and rented a traditional costume for Wipa and I took her picture in front of plants in their highly picturesque garden. The village is atop Doi Pui, which is just west of Chiang Mai. Takes about forty-minutes on a motor scooter up a steep and winding road to get there.
