A Thai prelude to Burma

Thursday, 6 Sep 2007 | Views [366]

Lek and the elephant conservation centre

Thursday, 14 Jun 2007 | Views [608]

Lek in Thai means little and it truly describes the lady I met today. However it only describes her physical size. It does not describe the size of her determination nor the extent of her courage. It certainly does not describe the size of the object ... Read more >

Cooking in Chag Mai

Wednesday, 30 May 2007 | Views [696] | Comments [3]

Although I have spent a day and some in Bangkok already, I guess my trip really starts here, in Northern Thailand. Quite an apt gateway for a quest. This is were all nomads converged in the past and will undoubtedly do so in the future. Caravans of Yunnanese ... Read more >
