Back to Chiang Mai

After about 5 days in Pai, I headed to a small town near the Myanmar border named Mae Hong Son. The scenery on the way there was spectacular, and this time I took the big local bus so I was able to enjoy it instead of concentrating on keeping myself from barfing. Mae Hong Son itself is just a quiet little town, but there are a lot of natural attractions and hilltribe villages near it. I met an English guy and a Finnish guy and jumped on the back of their motorbikes and we went to visit a longneck Karen tribal village. To be honest, I'm not quite sure what to think about it. On the one hand, it was interesting to see, but on the other hand, it seems like the people are just set up to be looked at by tourists...

I'm now back in Chiang Mai and I'm heading to Myanmar tomorrow for just one day to do a visa run. After that, it's back to Bangkok to look for work. I'm soo overjoyed at the thought of that...
