Story —

The washing of hair ritual is very important to Thai people, an ethnic minority in Vietnam. 

It is an expression of loyalty and gratitude to their ancestors and traditions, and also a means of communication with the spiritual world.  I have spent many hours in these beautiful Thai Villages and it will remain one of my most enduring memories of Vietnam.
