I’m on the road again! This time, in northern Thailand, where I spent a few days in a Lahu village (a hill tribe village) near Chiang Mai. Try to imagine it: stilt houses made of wood and bamboo, beautiful lush green mountains, chickens and pigs around the streets, an interesting culture and friendly people. How is it to live there?
