Miao Village, Southern China

During my recent trip to Laos and China I visited different Hmong / Miao Villages. Here are some pictures of one village. Most Hmong / Miao villages are usually quite high into the mountains. This particular one was build on a somewhat flatter area. When you read the "Sketch of a Road Trip in Laos" you will notice how many of these photos correspond with what I saw while driving in the mountainous regions of Laos. These photos are, however, not of a Hmong village in Laos, but of a Miao village in China. The Hmong (Laos) and Miao (China) people are ethnically and culturally related.
