Last week I took Ton to his familyâ€™s home in Mae Taeng and then he and his brother showed me the local area â€“ nice day trip â€“ had a great time.
Mae Taeng area is beautiful this time of the year â€“ these red flowered trees are everywhere .
From here we went to the Buatong Waterfall â€“ so much minerals in the water that they have dropped out and coated the hill with a cement like layer- amazing.
You can walk right up the falls without slipping –
Next we went to see the 7 Tribes Village â€“ here is their brochure and the front sign â€“ I love this shot of a Karen girl â€“ Ton got her to play and sing a native song for us – great
From here we went to the end of the road which ended at the Ping River â€“ many boulders in it so white water abounds â€“ rafting and tubing is the name of the day â€“ Ton and his brother went swimming – I just watched and relaxed â€“ got a good shot of a very cute ladyboy â€“ canâ€™t wait till the rainy season starts and the area greens up â€“ beautiful
