Simnon thanks for looking.
1.the girl is about 25 years. And all clothes has to be new before they can get old.
2.most are anemiste but I suppose some are Buddhist or Christian. Remember that the monks on horses come to their village to make them Buddhist.
3. It's about 8 in the morning. And the pics are not for any book or postcards. They are shoot about 1½ hours drive from Chiang Rai in the mountains.

hello Lars nice galerie
i am a bit suprising about this and other pics

1/ this girls is a Akha i never seen a young girl Akha with all the costume
and also seems new and clean.

2/ i though Akha were Anemiste and some are Catholique, it just a bit strange this offrande to some buddhist monk.

3/ the offrande are early in morning and here it seems to be not so early ??

are those pics real or made for something special (book, revue , post card .... )

i was just wonder
regards
Simon
