- Ba MaiThe village where we stay is named Ba Mai, “new village”. The villagers are from the Karen community. They moved to this place about 40 years ago, after the “old village” fell without water. There are 40 to 45 households. Posted by jefvincent in not the end of the road | Feb 28, 2017
- Marching onThe trek itself – to and back – is perfect. We travel through a secondary forest, there are very few big old trees left. There is a lot of light, because most trees lose their leaves during the dry season. Posted by jefvincent in not the end of the road | Feb 26, 2017

- Chiang Mai We've spent the last three days in Chiang Mai, the sprawling capital of Northern Thailand surrounded by hazy mountains--hazy, sadly, from copious air pollution.
