A day with locals

a photo story

By In Khun Yuam, Mae Hong Song, Photos, Thailand

I had the great opportunity to visit a school in the mountains near Mae Hong Song in northern Thailand. It was the best experience in Thailand for me so far on this trip. The pictures of this trip are very special for me and I want to share them with you.

We went to the fields seeing the farmers and all their friends and family planting rice. Everybody was there and helped. I tried it too, but I was too slow.

It was great to see the kids having so much fun on the way. Nobody cared getting wet or dirty.

Of course I did a short movie about it. I hope you like it.

It was a rainy and cloudy day, but the landscapes were still amazing

The school system is very strange. There are not enough teachers, especially in the smaller schools. Some schools basically accept everybody as a teacher, no matter what experiences you have.

    Like we said “Rice is Life ” In Thailand no rice no country!! the photograph is so stunning. The scenery is gorgeous in raining season. And is the good time to plant rice. What is got me is so nice to see every one kids, adult, women and man working together and this things are getting loss in many part of Thailand. And make me think this is the way farmers should be enjoy the hard work together and appreciate the good rice together!!
    Well done!! Thank you so much
