    Again, in the Sa Pa village, at an altitude of 1,800 m. above sea level. A son helping his Dad drum the Red Rice whiles his two younger brothers playing near by. The mother collects the freshly cut piles from all over the paddies length. This tall red rice will be used to make ‘steaky rice’, an interesting process by itself. Every Hmong family pride itself on growing a small quantity of steaky rice, used for special ceremonies as rice cakes. The family house is the one you see nearby.

    The weather in this region changes very quickly. It’s been said that here you can experience three season of weather everyday. The Black Hmong, named after the dark Indigo Blue clothing they wear, account for about 50% of the region population of about 60,000.

    Please take a few moments to read more about the Black Hmong and the Sapa community, check other images in this Rice set.

    Sorry, On Dial-up now, at 26 Kbps, so it says, but actually much slower. Flickr is impossible :(
    Also not much on line now, will catch up with all of you when I’m back :)

    Thanks for the many interesting comments and contact request. Have no time to reply in detail now, but hopefully when I’m back. Thanks for your understanding.
