Sapa, in Northern Vietnam near the Chinese border, differs from the rest of the country because of its mountainous character and its diverse ethnic background. Home to many tribes such as H’mong and Dzao, which migrated from China centuries ago (and some of which don't talk Vietnamese), those picturesque highlands offer spectacular views of rice terraces...

We were trekking under the rain on a muddy road near Sapa when we saw an old lady (probably a Dark Dzao) at the entrance of a wooden house. Our guide asked for a permission to get inside. It was pretty dark there, -possibly- the daughter of the old lady was weaving a cotton bag, under the light of the only electric lamp of the house. The older child, her daughter was crying, we didn't know why. We gave her a pen and some candies to calm her down. After then, I had an opportunity to take some pictures.
