You can just meet people. Tha you can meet people than change your life;
people that end your life or simple funny people to spend time together and you'll never forget.
You can meet hot people, bastards or carismatic. I met this guy, my couchsurf host.
I start to let me think little bit differently. He is interesting, full and pro-active.
He didn't change anything visible but I really can say that it was one
of the most important "enocunter" I did in this long trip.
Coincidence: Today it's his birthday.

- Mae Hong Son -
You can find 3 or 4 Long Neck villages in the Mae Hong Son area,
in the very north of Thailand, close to the Myanmar border.
I was lucky because I found the most famous woman there,
maybe the oldest that still wears the necklace.
Actually it is a tradition they were losing, but thanks to the tourists,
who love it, the tradition step by step is starting again and you can see
young women with few rings on the neck, some of them, of course, fake. they are easy to pick.
Noone really knows the reasons of this tradition, we heard a lot of theories, several fantastic,
like the one that tells it's a protection for tiger attacks (!!??). Probably, the only credible reason
is that the rings were considered a wonderful jewel to seduce men.
