Finally have a chance to update the some of the last of the shots from Thailand. This set below is from Umphang region of Thailand which is southwest of Tak.
Some things are the always the same regardless of location or culture. This woman is riding a motorbike with one hand, dog on the back, and talking on a cell phone. But this is out in the boonies in the mountains, and I don't have any cell signal!!!
Here is me and Ken laying in the back of a pickup truck coming back from Umphang to Mae Sot across the mountains and the 1090 Highway with its 1219 deadly turns. You can see how worried we are.
