    Default Hilltribe Village Kids

    Some photo's of the kids at the village where we stayed at for our first night on a hill/jungle trek in Northern Thailand.

    Any and all feedback appreciated.

    1. Rabbit Ears. All photo's taken with the 5D3 + 24L.

    5. Snack time.


    6. Watching the footy game.

    Even in isolated areas the kids still know to do cheeky things behind someone getting their pic taken. 1,2,3, and 8 are great shots. 6 definately looks like a future army general.

    Yep, they were alot of fun! Cool to just see them amuse themselves too, no need for playstations or barbie dolls to keep these guys happy.

    Just a few more.
    9. Origami lessons.


    10. Art Class.


    11. And the bamboo hut we managed to get 12 of us into

    Thanks, Jos. I was a bit exhausted after trekking through the jungle in the 30+C and humidity, but figured I'd better take some photo's after lugging the 5D up and down all those hills. Will have to print them off too to send back to them to thank them for the hospitality.

    Ah, I was wondering if you did something like that, they will be blown away, you will be famous forever.

    Will you need to laminate them for them to last?
