We gave mainly food to the people there, milk, packages for noodlesoup. We also bought things from the little stands there. The necklaces and bracelets were beautiful! A lot of women were pregnant, and the ones who weren't had babies.
We went on to the Lahu tribe. These were a little wealthier. They lived in a bit more luxury compared to the Akhu-tribe. But instead of a view we only got through a sort of improvised street with stands, nothing more. So the Akhu-tribe was more interesting to spend time.
We went to have lunch in a beautiful garden, and after that we went to the Golden Triangle. We went on a boat and saw Birma, Laos and Thailand from the Mekong-river. We even went on land in Laos for a while where we could shop around a bit. It was nice to do because we haven't had much time to shop during the days we have been on our trip. So later on we went back to Thailand. We also saw very small wooden fisherman's huts...it was a bit of an upsetting site to see how people lived on the shore of the river.
