The Flower Hmong Pictorial

We’ve moved up into the incredibly picturesque northern highlands of Vietnam to visit the hill tribe markets in Can Cau and Bac Ha. Our motorbike trip out to Can Cau through the fantasy karst scenery was a bit of a muddy mess due to recent landslides and ongoing road construction. But in the end, the markets were well worth the effort as you can see in our most recent pictorial on the extraordinary Flower Hmong, one of the most colorful tribes in Asia.

    I love this pictorial. In Wisconsin, the Hmong living in La Crosse were the first ESL classes I had ever taught. They were certainly doing a lot of weaving there. This is one tribe I need to see one day.

    I would love to go to Wisconsin and see some of the Hmong celebrations there. I saw a documentary on the Discovery Channel about Hmong traditions in Wisconsin – looks fascinating. We miss you.

    I love starting the day going back and viewing your beautiful pictorials.
    These really are a lifetime treasure.
