Back in Pai – Winter 2016/2017
After a few days in Bangkok it was time to go up north. The night bus to Chiang Mai and the mini bus to Pai.
The bus to Chiang Mai
I had about 8 times more space than on the Swiss flight!
Pai river with the big Buddha in the mountain
The first Khao Soi this winter – many more to follow!
A misty morning at Twin Hut
The Twin Hut cats
The mountains on the other side – with the 200mm
A very happy Scottish Mark
Sunset from my Bungalow at Twin Hut
Leo is back – great to see you my friend!!
Rice harvest all over in the valley
The boss of Sapah Muang makes it a little bit different every day. This is the special VIP portion. See how big the bow is? Still 40 Baht :-)
Bungalow #7 at Twin Hut – still the best place in Pai!!
Construction Thai style. You take 9 people and fill 2 big tubs
Now you take the little bucket and fill from the tub – the curved thing. Instead you could drive slow with the truck and fill it from there??
Some of them do come without seeds
And some of them do come with seeds
Morning at Twin Hut
Evening at Twin Hut
Another Khao Soi
Trip to the highest Mountain of Pai – Doi Thong
A bike trip with the Sapah Muang Gang
The Pai valley in the back
100 cc are not enough to go up steep mountains. But the bike is over 30 years old.
Pai – you can see the White Buddha on the mountain in the middle
Up up – goes the Sapah Muang Boss Lady
Staff following swift
Lunch before the final approach
No smoke – nice blue sky
Up there is the little temple
