Doi Mae Salong and back trip

Sawadee Khrap

Just got back from a weekend trip to Doi Mae Salong – Thaton – Fang DSC04189-Pano-Edittrip with Simon. First leg of trip, we went to the temple high on the hill above Mae Salong.  Great view.  Then we stopped by the old Chinese Army camp – actually we were told it was a special place for amputees- all the families living there are from injured soldiers.DSC04175-PanoDSC04207DSC04214

Some great shots here, then on to Thaton and Doi Angkhang.  On the DSC04244DSC04231way stopped to watch some women loading potatoes in a truck and then 20180225_081226found a place to stay overnight at Mae Ai –  The next morning, headed to the mountain park, we stopped by a noodle stand Xishuangbanna operated by Chin and his brother, after a quick Chinese breakfast we headed  to the Royal Project at Doi Angkhang – wonderful flowers and a place to DSC04273-PanoDSC04286DSC04289visit – here they have a marvelous camping ground setup with a view of the surrounding area.   It was the first chance that Simon and I had to take a photo exploring trip together and what a success – already planning on going back to spend more time at specific spots to capture the true beauty and splendor of the northern Chiang Rai-Fang area.  Next time I’ll produce some slideshows of the photos taken

The “Teardrop”

Sawadee Khrap

With all this bullshit about the Russians meddling in our elections – this bayonne13_fshas been entirely forgotten.  The teardrop Monument presented to the US by the Russians after the 9/11 destruction.

Here you can read the full story at the official web page  

Our Gov’t has completely ignored it or just covered it up – I haven’t heard one comment or saw one photo of it on any new cast – yet all this bullshit about collusion.  When will we take politics out of being a profession and return it to being service to the people.  Thanks Kevin for pointing this out.

Move the deer crossing signs

Sawadee Khrap

Have to Thank Frank Morgan for pointing this emergency out so we can look for a solution – Donna saw it  – why can’t the Gov’t do anything about it?  Doesn’t anyone really care?  Is this deceit and carnage never going to stop?  Why insist the deer have to cross here?  Here’s the full  interview – click on the image to start the link.deer crossing
