A Hill Tribe Girl In Chiang Mai

We met this girl on the steps leading up to the impressive Doi Sutthep Temple in Chiang Mai. It was a long walk so we took a few rests on the way during which she approached us and said she wanted to take a photo in almost perfect English (it seemed she could also speak a little German and probably a few other languages too) and grabbed the camera in the pic and used it without a single question as to how.

We then spent the afternoon exploring the beautiful temple above – but somehow – this strange, somewhat incomplete experience stuck out.

The following images were taken in the grounds of the Wat Phra That Doi Suthep.
