Now he had started a new life in this village, and by the teaching of Jon, he was able to grow tea and had a house where he dried the tea-leaves. He invited me in so I could see for myself.
So now I know that there is both very good coffee and tea produced in these villages!
The Lahu tribe have their own language, which I descovered trying to talk to this sweet young mother picking tea leaves. I tried to say «savadika», as the Thai people say when they greet each other, but I soon understood that she did not understand any thai language. I thought this was strange, after all, she was born and lived in Thailand. But then Jeff told me that, to my surprise, I was the first «falang» (foreigner) ever to visit this village together with Jeff.
