What a wonderful surprise! The rooms at the hotel Manee Dheva are stilt houses built on rice fields.
There’s no better way to start the day than watching the sky with such beautiful colours that illuminate our path.
The atmosphere is magical and it looks like the time has stopped.
We are sorrounded by tea gardens here in Mae Salong. These gardens are harvest by expert people who know what thery’re doing since it’s a hard job to do.
So now it’s time to stop for a second and have a cup of tea and have a chat with Sujira SaeLo.
We have arrived in a small village of Akha ethnicity. A group who escaped from China and Tibet.
There are no more than 40 or 50 stilt houses and there is a medicine man who chooses the perfect place to have religious rituals.
We are on the road again and we are no longer travelling by car, but by boat. At this time we have arrived on the other side of the river. We are in Laos.
We are tired and hungry and the local gave us typical dishes called Pla Duk Fu: a fried catfish with cashew and hot sauce, and Tom Taohu Musab: a vegetable soup with tofu, pork, turnips and eggs.
It’s time to go to bed. Tomorrow we start again!
