well – for the chinese it is now the year of the dog! the party was much smaller than last year cause the river took away a lot of the city and new buildings round the festival ground.
lots of dances (here kung fu)
than it was lahu new year – they celebate a lot longer than the chinese
the lahu dance around a spirit tree – with drums and flutes. funny thing: this lahu village is only a few minutes by motobike from pai. still only one other tourist there…
than there was also the lisu new year
they dance as well in circles with a flute in fron and a bigger circle around them – interesting
