We slept from 7pm to 7am and woke refreshed to take the long hike into the hills with our local guide Sing, and Katie and Robert from Berlin.
Lots of ups and downs and interesting things to see: mimosa (touch-sensitive plant), rice terraces (dry right now), water buffalo and Karen families living on the heights. Sing cooked us curry chicken and eggplant for lunch at the waterfalls (very cold showers all round!) and we hiked again finally out to the road and a back-of-the-truck ride to the bamboo raft put-in on the Mae Wang River. An hour later we landed at Chai Lai, a little soggy but refreshed by the cool rive water after an energetic day we needed after so much airplane/port sitting.
