Once upon a time...there was a child named Hilda.
Every night Hilda would stare out into the star-filled sky and wander about the moon and the milky way in her imagination. She wanted nothing more than to be tall, so that she could touch the moon for real and hold a shooting star by the tail. One day while playing on the mountain, Hilda tripped over a cobalt blue rock..."How beautiful!" she exclaimed. With her fingers she reached down and picked it up. Captivated by its luminous blue hue she didn't notice the creature she had unearthed from under the rock...

In the border mountains between Burma (Myanmar) and Thailand live the Kayan, known also as Padaung people. The "giraffe" matriarchs as they are often called, wear copper coils around their necks, which push their heads up and make their necks look long. Although it's not an optical illusion.
