The Harsh Realities of Wearing Those Neck Rings – A Reflection from the Long Neck Karen Hilltribe

Walking to the Karen Hill Tribe Village, there is a silent awkwardness - feeling like I’m walking into a Human Zoo. Our Tourist Guide has shown photos of them how they sleep in sideways, how they enjoy their free time in the villages singing and dancing and even how they take a shower while wearing this ring on their neck. FYI: They only take them off when adding rings.
