Locals of Sapa

On our hike to the hilltribe village in Sapa, we were stopped by dozens of ladies trying to sell us their hand-made purses, hats, and clothes.

All of the stuff she is wearing is handmade. Can you imagine how many hours that took?

This girl was so sassy. I asked her if I could take her picture, and then afterwords she said, "Now you buy from me!" Instead I tried to get her to play a game...

All you need is a coin, and you get the kids to guess which hand you're hiding it in, no language required. It's a trick my dad taught me.

Thanks to Tessa for taking these pictures

Tessa and I got these headbands which were intended to be straps for bags. 

Here's Nico drawing a picture. We stopped to take a rest and spent a few hours doodling.
