Akha Fishing

The reason we haven't been updating The Vernon Shutter recently is because we've had troubles with our Olympus Camedia C-60 camera these past few months. For a while we had Card Error messages popping up, then our pictures would only show up halfway, now the camera says it can only take one picture (on an empty 512MB card). All this to say we are a little frustrated with our camera situation right now so we haven't been updating this page.

However, after yesterday, we had to show you some pictures - even though they were taken from our phone. They aren't the best pictures we've ever taken, but they are from one of the funnest days we have ever had.

Since it is summer break for all the Thai schools. About fourteen of our Akha friends came to visit our village. They showed up without food, but rather than burden the village with feeding them they decided to go catch their meals. You can read more about our adventure fishing with the Akha from Lori's article in our Journey Notes blog. (The first picture is from our broom-making days which Lori also wrote about.)

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
