My Childhood Dream To Meet A Long Neck Karen

It was my dream to meet a long neck Karen hilltribe woman. The first copy of National Geographic I ever bought was in primary school from Book Club.

I wanted the subscription so badly because of the front cover, which featured a woman from a Hilltribe practicing neck lengthening by brass rings.

The idea of a long necked woman was so interesting, so different. In my lifetime I never thought I would ever meet her, but today I met two!
