Hmong New Year in Sam Tai

Reaching the playing fields in Sam Tai town, I realised this was a Hmong town, as the New Year courting game was in full swing. Here it was being played by all ages, and in groups: the eligible young men & women, the preteens, the primary children, and there were even some preschoolers all dressed up, but they were running around everyone else. And there was a group of middle-aged women watching and smiling, probably vitally interested in any romantic developments happening in the first group.
