In the days we spent in the very fertile Shan State area of Myanmar, we never saw people using a tractor to work the land (plowing, harvesting, moving the harvest, etc.), all of the work is done by people and oxen.
As we drove through the area we spotted women bringing in their harvest of tender green teas.
We stopped, and our private guide gave us a way to talk to the sweet ladies making their harvest. We were happy to see them, and they were very curious about us. And they were also happy to have a little help from my girls, who, it turns out, love to pluck little leaves from bushes.
