On our cruise down the Mekong we stop off at a small village. These are people from the Mien hill tribe. More re-location from the Golden Triangle I suspect. The village is pretty quiet apart from one shack where loud music blares out. This turns out to be the local bar. Lots of action in there despite the fact it is scarcely lunchtime. Otherwise kids and butterflies dominate the village. Of the two, the children are the easier option for photographs:)

More nearness in this image (in comparation with tomorrow's one), from the personal to the (more) political ?
The composition is perfect.
