Under a house on stilts, there was a wall made out of woven bamboo. Some children were hiding there and you could see their eyes and hear their giggles. A magical moment.

Thank you for al the comments on the beautiful children of the M’Lien village. Those kids are naturally friendly and curious when seeing a stranger in their village. They are not spoiled and have no need for “must have gadgets”. They seem to have retained their innocence. It was so nice to see them play and spend time talking to each other.

Hoping you’re going to like this as it’s different. Thank you for commenting on the photos, I really appreciate it.

Have a good day,
