One of the joys of doing fieldwork with rural communities in the tropics is that you are inevitably joined by a gaggle of kids that want to get a look at the strange, new guy in town (see Miao Kids, Dayak Kids, and Dayak Kids II). Image above shows Kachin children in the village of Shinlonga (see Shinlonga and Morning Mist) watching me eat breakfast. It was still early, and several of them came in their pajamas. [NOTE: The kid in the middle with the Game Boy seems decidedly disinterested in the whole thing.]
