Misty Mountains

Location: Near the Myanmar Border, Thailand

We arrive in Sangkhlaburi, a town reachable over 230 km of mountainous roads.

The view from our porch in Sangkhlaburi...mist on the lake, early fishermen, and the temples on the hillsides.

27 Dec 2006, 9:52PM

We traveled from Ayutthaya to Kanchanaburi (3 hours) by Sawngthaew. The small rail that Timmy's arm rests on is the only thing between him and the pavement. Our new friends from Germany, Astrid and Patrick, joined us. We had a great hangman game and learned that Patrick is often hungry.

A simple garden spirit house. Because of the ban on teak logging, most spirit houses are now made of brightly painted concrete.

John and his good buddy, Maa. They always looked like this when they were together.

The view from one end of the longest wooden bridge in the world...built to link Sangkhlaburi with the friendly Mon village across the lake.

It is winter in Thailand but still the flowers bloom...water hyacinth and lotus on the rivers and ponds as well as flowering trees like this one.

The powder on this boy's face indicates he is a Karen villager. The powder brightens the skin and protects it from the sun.

In America, a minivan. In Thailand, this. Believe it or not, there's a family of 8 plus one balloon inside. On our first day here, we had 15 people in a pickup truck...with room to spare. Normal life here. We often see motorcycles go past with 4 generations riding on them.

Hiking through the jungle to a waterfall. The farther we got into the jungle, the smaller the bridges became...from 5 bamboo poles wide to 1.

30 Dec 2006, 2:42AM

The Flat Connellys visit Three Pagodas Pass, the border between Myanmar and Thailand. For years a black market outpost, the village is now a collection of market stalls and a temple.

30 Dec 2006, 4:05AM

At the falls, the water was very cold. Timmy was brave in being the first one in and made it look so fun, the rest soon followed.

A tranquil jungle scene...sans crocodiles.
