vieille femme fumant pipe ŕ Mrauk-U

This aged lady (80 years old) is one of the last six representatives of one ethnic group
that settled in Mrauk-U 200 years ago.
In fact, these women (and their ethnic group) come down from the Chin state mountain.
Their ancestors came with the prince of their ethnic group who had conquered Mrauk-U.
The women wear immense buckles of ears made of silver who distandent the skin.
