Young mothers

I asked one very young looking Black Hmong girl if she was carrying her sister. She looked at me funny and said, “No, this is my daughter.”

Like in the rest of Vietnam, children go everywhere with their parents. In the hills of Northern Vietnam, that means mothers wrap their daughters in cloth and strap them to their backs. It looks like a great vantage point from which wide eyes can learn about the world.
