  Unusually shy Black Hmong girls

Along our descent, we also met quite a number of villagers on their way up to Sapa. These amazing people do the four hour round trip trek practically everyday bringing their handicrafts to sell in the town.

The children though were the most endearing. With rosy cheeks and bold wit, it is difficult to turn them down when they try to sell you their little handmade knick-knacks. The little ones have also picked up english from the tourists, not all of it good, so be prepared to hear exclamations of "Pretty girl, you buy from me? No buy from me, you naughty!" (or alternatively, "no buy from me, you monkey!")
