A very interesting blog. I knew about some of these groups, but I did not realize that there are so many. I've been to the Museum of Ethnology in Hanoi twice. It provides a fascinating insight into the living and working lives of the Vietnamese ethnic groups. It is a 'must' visit for anyone travelling to Hanoi.
