  • At 8 we depart from our hotels in Mrauk-U for visiting the villages famous Chin for women who do tattoos all over his face. To get to the pier it takes almost 30 min. because the dirt road is in very poor condition, then by boat and just over 1:00 and 30 min. you get to the first village which is called Pan Palmer; the old village, with a dense Web of tattoos on face, we are meeting, we offer bananas and want to sell us the few products (scarves and handbags) get to the frame. After getting recommended with our guide, we opt to leave money to local school teachers, we visit and which consists of a wooden hut open, with some mats. The teacher thanks us, will use the money to buy materials, here everything is missing, you don't do much for these ethnic minorities. Back on the boat, we continue for about 10 min. our river trip arriving on the beach close to the second village Chin, I think her name was Sho Me. In this village, larger than the first, things are better, the barracks are better (there's even a shop and a NLD party headquarters) and the school is a masonry building, thanks also to an Italian organization, "save a toddler" (whose plate is affixed outside the school), that 3 years ago has provided funds to build it, even here we leave a small contribution. Back in the boat, in less than two hours (we have the current favorable), we at the pier where there is our bus that takes us back to our hotel in Mrauk U to 14.30. This excursion is very nice because you know a little about the reality of this population

  • We went to a Chin village, poor but very clean, where we were received with open arms. We visited the school, fdonne notebooks and pens. We then sat in the middle of the village with villagers, young and old women tattooed for more than an hour to Exchange: a strong human experience. We were offered tea, bananas.
