The mountain village we stayed in
Back in Chang Mei after a 3 day trek near Pai. Good hiking but the guide shorted us a little to save himself some money. Took a wonderful walk down a small river, wading it many times. Also drank a bit of local moonshine, which seemed a little weak, and then we shared a bottle of Thais wiskey, which was weaker still. Overall we enjoyed the trek. The hill tribes live a subsistence life, hunting, farming corn and rice, raising chickens and pigs, and using bamboo for everything.

We have been eating our way through Thailand, food everywhere and I'm getting fat!!!
