Hue and Phai race each other down a path near their home in the mountains of central Vietnam. They are cousins from the Ta Oi ethnic group and wear their traditional handwoven clothing.

So much fun hanging out with these two in their small, fairly remote village. The following day we returned and gave the kids a bunch of clothes that were donated from our friend Chef Geert in Hoi An. They were very much appreciated!
