Karen Long Necked Tribe girl.

Now here is a comparison for you!
Visiting with these tribes and photographing them was perhaps my favorite part of the entire tour. I was impressed how well all of the girls dressed. I was also blown away with the way that the mothers and sisters would care for and teach their children and siblings.

These kids are creating their own fun, just like any child growing up in a small town.

Long necked girls get their first rings at about 3 years old and add them every three years.
