Into the Home of the Mountain people for tea and a powerful alcohol drink.

The Humung people and their trib are very interesting. They have a different view of what death means. They believe so deeply in another life after this one, that they will celebrate when one of their own dies. Or at least this is what I was told... So, it's not uncommon for a mother to give birth to 11 or more children in her lifetime, and only have 1 or 2 survive to adulthood.

Give this, I can see why they have this view on death.

This post is not about this, however. No, but we were invited into a home of the Humung people to have tea and a powerful alcoholic drink.

Here are photos from this putting...err.. inning. lol

It's very true. I think the more stuff you have in life, Is the leading cause that makes you forget what truly makes people happy.

There is a Hmong community near us in French Guiana.

I wonder if it's the same lineage of people or different people with the same name... Be cool to see a genealogy study of different ethnic populations and where they are around the world.
