Living in an Akha Hill Tribe Village in Chiang Rai, Thailand

Aleina Tanabe is a student at Regis University and an ISA Photo Blogger. She studied abroad with ISA in Bangkok, Thailand.

During my homestay I observed how to be truly resourceful, hospitable, and resilient. It was humbling to work beside the hill tribe peoples and learn about their culture and way of life.
