Two young akha women, on their way to the forest

On their way into the forest, these two young Akha women are keeping busy by 'knitting' a carry bag. (Maybe 'crochet' is more appropriate)

Early morning, people gather at the edge of the village, preparing to walk into the jungle on their way to their rice fields, gathering firewood, or collecting products from the forest. Some young teenagers stay behind to look after the youngest children.
