A special meeting in Sapa - Asia


#travel

Under one of my previous posts I received positive comments about my trip through Asia.
That's why I decided to share a little bit of my Asia trip here and then.
Today I want to tell you about a special meeting in Vietnam, against the Chinese border, in Sapa.
Many people know the rice fields in Bali but they fall into nowhere with the rice fields that hit the mountains in Sapa.

Here you can see the rice fields in Sapa:

After a snappy walk I stayed in a Homestay with a local family and got a glimpse into their culture.
Children become independent here early, so the daughter of 9 and the son of 11 hours walk away were only guarding rice fields with a buffalo.
Quite different from here, they didn't have much, but as far as I could tell, they were very happy.

Here you see one of the kids with the buffalo:

Next time another story!

I'd love to hear if you're also curious about the bizarre marriage proposal ritual in Sapa.
