Sa Pa, day two

On the second day we set off on a trek to Lao Chai village, a H’mong village. We were lucky to visit a school, now each village has one. The children sang for us and then returned to their studies.

The paddy fields are brown and red this time of year. The true striking colour comes out in summer, and the rice is harvested in September. This time of year it still look quite impressive but I would love to see it in summer.IMG_6104 IMG_6105 IMG_6106 IMG_6108 IMG_6110IMG_6111

We then moved on to Ta Van village, home to the Zay community.

When we reached the Home stay in the evening I went for a stroll and came across this young guy on a rock contemplating life.IMG_6165IMG_6167

An interesting group at the Homestay 5 Koreans and an Israeli with excellent taste in music, the same as mine!. One Korean guy was great fun, absolutely crazy!
