My next, new, passion is clicker training. This is a method of training dogs (and other animals, cats & sheep even) with positive reinforcement. It is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. I was shown how to do this by a friend (in about 10 minutes) and then I read the book, Don\'t Shoot the Dog, by Karen Pryor.

The Akha tribes live in the hill country of northern Thailand in what is called "the golden triangle." They are still living close to the traditional ways of their ancestors, though modern society is rapidly encroaching on their territory with all its problems.
