We left Wat Suan Dok at 5 AM and drove directly to Tachileik, Myanmar, crossing the bridge there into Burma. We were on a 30 person group Visa so they took all the Thai’s ID’s and the foreigner’s Passports and told that we would get them back at the end of the trip. I didn’t care for that but there was nothing I could do about it. I was in the same minivan as Conrad and his Thai wife Tim – so there was someone I could speak English to while on the trip. After the border we headed to Mong Hpayak where we had lunch and then on to Keng Tung. I did find out that I was mistaken about the final city we would visit – it was actually the most eastern city Mong Yawng. Arriving at Keng Tung area, we first visited a school that Phra Saneh sponsored and then on to a Burmese Akha village where he is supplying money to build a temple for them. Arriving at Keng Tung we stayed at the “Golden World Hotel” and visited Wat Pha Jao Lung, Nong Tung Lake, Gard Luang Central Market, Wat Jong Kham, the slideshow is long but shows images from the area in timed sequence – sorry I didn’t get the names of all the places visited. – I also was in the middle of a van and could not get more photos – I had taken the older smaller Canon G15, because I was afraid that it might get confiscated, the camera is really slow focusing so I missed many great opportunities along the way – next time I will take the 7D or maybe the Sony. This is the first 2 days of the trip.
