16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Young Merchant

I was walking through a village admiring the colorful textiles when the older girl pictured began offering prices to several items catching my eye. She was very young, shrewd and fascinating to watch let alone negotiate prices with. I asked if it was ok to take her photo. She replied in perfect English, "yes, of course," then pulled her little sister in front of her, proud. The little one was a hoot too;) #asia #mountains #world #culture #thailand #travel #karen #budget #hilltribe #longneck #explore
