I also visited the Black Hmong people but did no ask permission to display their photos in a public way – its a nice story and interesting photos – let me know if you want to look and I’ll give you the password. Use the comment facility to contact me.

Bamboo pipe near Sa Pa
I stayed at the farmhouse of Ngi and Cuon in the village of Thang Phu, near Sa Pa
Ngi smoking tobacco in his bamboo water pipe. This is in his cornfield – I helped him till for corn planting. You can see how steep the hillside is.
Ngi and I met Duong, my guide, on the way back from the the corn field, and the three of us went back on the motorbike. The most I saw was five on on one motorbike – a very modest load.
These fishermen, Sang and his father and uncle, showed me the river at Hoi An on their boat.
