In the lands of the north-western Vietnam

In the lands of the north-western Vietnam, between the narrow mountainous areas between China and Laos, we find the tribes of the various ethnic groups, ranging from the colorful Hmong (or Miao), the Tay, the second largest population, with Lu The first source of livelihood for these ancient people is agriculture: tradition has it that everything is done according to the lunar cycles. The markets are full of goods, from animals to textiles, handicrafts entirely handmade. Unfortunately, the old values of these centenarian tribes are giving way to new western tradition.
