AMONG THE HMONG

That title actually rhymes! The Hmong are the indigenous mountain people in Northern Vietnam. We are about 30 minutes north of Sapa in a great homestay. To say that it is basic would be about as accurate as it gets, and we are loving it. Right now it is a bit foggy so a good time to write a little.

This is where we are - and as you can see much of the great food we eat here is home grown. ..
