I'll never forget when…

While I was staying in Mai Chau, I had the opportunity to visit a smaller Hmong village further up in the mountains. As I tend to feel most energized by mountainous landscapes and rural communities, I was already excited to spend time with the Hmong tribe. When I arrived as an obvious outsider, the whole village was incredibly warm towards me, practically showering me with rice wine and smiles. The local men were having a big, mostly-barefoot, soccer tournament on a dirt field with bamboo goals and invited me to play on one of the teams. Playing soccer with them and being able to connect in an authentic way without speaking a common language was really something special and a memory I look back on fondly!
