Cooking with fire. The village also has electricity, but it is very expensive. Electricity is mostly used to power lights and fans, or a television set if the household has one.
On the banks of a polluted river, in poorly-built houses, live more than a hundred people from the Lahu tribe. They live in a slum in Chiang Mai, Thailand, away from the Lahu people’s original way of life. Usually, the Lahu people get their resources from the forest. The slum has been there for decades.
Some of the people work in construction, while others clean roads or restaurants. Although some of them find work on occasion, they remain poor. Lack of education makes a normal way of life with a stable income almost impossible.
