Children at a Mae Ae village that I visited on 4 July 2011

Village with Lahu architecture







This spiritual leader of the village lost his teeth from being drunk and falling off his motor bike. He says he has stopped drinking but his bodily odour tells the truth...

Soon, a stateless man who fits all the criteria for citizenship apart from not meeting the requirement of making 30,000 baht per month. He makes 10,000 per year.

72year old man and waiting for his citizenship to be approved!
