The golden valley in sunny wheat fresh spill, hugging the winding paths to the mountain passes. I would like to drop myself into each clouds. My motorbike riding on the road glides sides purple coulor of floral flowers. In this season, the forests is overflowing by color of many flowers. Purple flower, white ginger flowers, floral gold technology, … color is mixing and sporadic in the morning dew. The smell of forest, the smell of grass rocks, sun dried odor thin mist … I like being in another world. Forget those tired of chaos town car exhaust, the sound of a render farm busy weekdays.
Y Ty is misty and welcome me with a thin rain. Rain gently rolling into the cheeks, wetting the sideburns. then the rain finished. Sunny also up, both upland rice bright iridescent crops. I begin the journey to explore the villages in the valley deep hun smoking. Small path dimly rattan sun with cool air. Ramps up and then back down. I found myself creeping across the walkway around the mountain. Rice September special. Each array premature gold, dark yellow, yellow green, yellow petal interwoven. It seems that people here are not harvested at the same time when the weather slowly waiting for rice mau hong nine, for rapid flowering tops.
Beyond the few mountain, I finally arrived in Lao Chai village – the village with those “mushroom house” where people travel often each transmission dust. Go through all ranges constant waves in sunny yellow rice obtained through the lush green forest of bamboo thickets soar sky, I saw a thatched roof flickers between road mud mud brown.

I stop at Lao Chai Primary School 1 – a condition preschools between Lao Chai village housing. Saying that school, but just a block from including 3, 4 small classrooms. A small yard, with swing for children to play. Today is Sunday, the children were playing in the yard. Favorite game young we are “racing”. This special racing cars too. Made few bamboo composite, which adds another 2 wheel end. So he sat a driver, a boy behind the push. Cars sped by very rudimentary. I also tried once feeling the children’s games. Very interesting experience!
In the bottom field, she was altogether some swing dancing. Simply trapeze bars and rope lay wood ligation. Games kids, surprisingly simple. I suddenly remembered the expensive toy store in town. Remember the park complete with modern games. Swings Full-color, red green wooden horse, fish, drive a car, … lives that, there are some things it’s hard to say. Looking smile carefree childhood, eagerly, I hope they keep this innocence everlasting beauty. Nevertheless, childhood is still time most beautiful and carefree!
Besides the point that green grass field with a thatched roof house land. The house is very large and locked the door. It seems that this “culture” of the – the language and vision of urban guys like me.
I walk and visit the houses in the hamlet. In here, it seems everyone has to rely before. Was always absent, only cattle are bathing under the canal. I was attracted by a grass thatched roof house overgrown green vines. This house is probably quite a long time. Housing has to be fenced by class door and bamboo. Moss also listened full wall. Smell May are clearly etched around those sticky spots here. Vet flaky walls, enough to see its lifetime.
Saw strangers, the children were playing outside the nearby ditch that runs into. I inquired and broken candy for us young. Children a free hand this joke backstroke mud spattered get candy, eyes eager and innocent smile. Follows a young boy, I had the house next door, greet and ask for permission to visit the home.
The landlord is an elderly woman was busy kitchen team. Specifically the Ha Nhi. Hair wrapped into a ring on the head with a black outfit, had exactly one button buttoned chest. Initially I was quite surprised with specific thick hair. But then realized it was rolled wig, was braided from strands of bark detached forest. It seemed likely not understand the Vietnamese language, just smiled and beckoned me. Sometimes the language gap is replaced by the smile and eyes hospitality.
Small gifts that we enjoy and child friendly
Inside the house is quite narrow and low light. Seems house without windows and kitchen smoke spiraling up around the house, it is. Due to the harsh climatic conditions, living in the clouds, live between frosts throughout the year, so here Hanhi building watertight homes with thick walls and at the door to keep warm and avoid drafts. Also, like the kitchen roof of mountain land, the kitchen here also sticks horizontal building roof pitch black dye kitchen smoke, hanging straight rows of corn and inconclusive. It looks like corn also fumed that changing.
