Karen Refugees...

I went up to Mae Hong Son, in northern Thailand... to make a feature story about Karen refugees... who fled to thailand recently because they were attacked by Burmese troop.
I have more than 200 pictures.. These are some selected, more pictures will be posted on flickr.com or my personal photo website (which is still underconstruction).

Poor thing. I thought the Karen were one of native tribes in Thailand. I seen them joining the loy khrathong parade at chiangmai? good thing not seeing them practising putting rings around the neck for the women folks.
