A 98 year old Chiang villager sits on the doorstep to her 10x12 mud and stone hut. In her hand she holds a photo that I took the year before with a friend of hers. Because her family has moved away to the city, she has no family at the village and thus been put at the farthest end. On top of it she has outlived her friends.
