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 Thaiâ€™s IDâ€™s and the foreignerâ€™s Passports and told that we would get them back at the end of the trip. I didnâ€™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 â€“ 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 â€“ 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 â€œGolden World Hotelâ€ 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 â€“ sorry I didnâ€™t get the names of all the places visited. â€“ I also was in the middle of a van and could not get more photos â€“ 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 â€“ next time I will take the 7D or maybe the Sony. This is the first 2 days of the trip.
