Pictures from the Lisu New Year and next Moves

To much smoke here now – it is like thick white haze for the last few days. That is not nice so I will leave tomorrow with the bus at 10 to Chiang Mai. Than I try to get a night bus to Ubon Ratchastani. From there with another small one to the border and then to Pakse. From there down to Don Det where Ita has a room for me waiting at the Pai in Lao Bar.

Yesterday i lost one friend from Stuttgart here in Pai. The night before we had beers here on my balcony and the next morning he was gone. Heroin overdose – WTF? Sad to go like that – all alone in your bungalow. We where talking about his future and what to do – now there is no more future for him.

A few days ago i took Sinéad to Dapilu for the Lisu New Year. This place is so far from Pai as it gets. This year they had a few more cars. The place changes slowly as well.

This year it was so many Lisu at the village – they had to divide the celebration to 2 different houses. No house has enough space for all of them dancing together

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
