    Burmese Kayan Tribe Long Neck Woman Returns Home After 14 Years Working in Thailand

    Now, several have returned to their remote native Panpet area in Kayah
    state, Myanmar, with an entrepreneurial plan to reverse the flow of
    departures, as their once junta-ruled homeland emerges from decades of
    solitude.

    Ms Mu Par came home a few months ago, having saved enough money after
    working for 14 years in Thailand. She now runs one of a dozen neat
    little shacks selling locally made wooden dolls, scarves and
    individual bronze neck rings. Lining up a neat row of handmade
    "long-neck dolls" at a new craft market, she hopes to provide for her
    four children, aged between four and 15.

    "If we can get many tourists here, we want all the Kayan girls in Thailand to come back," she told AFP.

    So instead of buying those pointy hats and wooden frogs in Thailand, does this mean we will now have to go to Myanmar to get them?...555
