... visit some of the hill tribes. We met two kinds, the first originally from Tibet who have been in Thailand for about 200 years and are now considered Thai and then the long neck tribes who are refugees from Burma and who are still not given the same rights as Thai people. The women from the long neck tribes wear golden rings around their necks and legs as a sign of wealth and beauty. People mistakenly think this breaks the neck somehow and that they ...
