House with concrete stairs--Ban Banh

When I passed through this region 25 years ago, I never saw any house like this, so the Tais are doing much better economically, just like the Vietnamese, but there's a twist: By integrating more into Vietnamese society, they're becoming less Tai, just like the Vietnamese are becoming less Vietnamese by integrating into the US-dominated global economy and culture.
