Visit to a sword forging shop and a cigar factory

Late in the day we visited a few more shop/factories where swords, fish traps, and cigars were being made. The first picture has Khun, our guide, demonstrating how the fish trap is used. At the sword forging shop everything was done by hand. Young boys were operating the bellows and teams of three people used sledge hammers to forge swords; these were ornamental swords. At the cigar factory young women were making cigars - I think this was a place for apprenticeship.
