Sapa is a mountain town that has the kind of misty postcard terraced rice paddies that you can hardly believe exist. The 'minority' people as the villagers are called still wear some of their tribal dress. Well, more women than men, but some of them, too. We took an overnight train to Sapa and then did a hike down to a village called Cat Cat on a trail that wound through small farms and rice paddies. We were trailed by the local entreprenuers trying to sell up jewelry, embroidered goods & postcards.
