    Shhhh. I've not mentioned it yet but I think he forgot.
    I don't want to make him feel bad.
    He's on holiday.
    It's no big deal.
    I wasn't really really looking forward to it.
    No worries.
    Really not an issue.
    Really........

    I didn't want to put such a precious cargo in my luggage, know how the luggage is treated and I knew we couldn't bring it as carry one....

    Let's face it, we've all had quarts of mayo in our drawers and socks and I figured if the first thing I had to so ask if it's ok to wash mayo out of our clothes, it might not made a great third impression.

    Inside Thailand..







    Outside of Thailand...








    I grew up in Florida and back in the day we'd have seafood shacks that served the freshest seafood and the tastes and the ambiance were relaxed with great food and cold beer...

    Chiang Khan is like Disneyland for Thai hipsters. All in their tourist gear with huge cameras hanging from their necks like Chinese tourists....quite the spectacle.

    Today, our gracious hosts took us to two really cool spots, Palai Cave and Doi Phra Tang.

    The drive between CJ's village and the cave is spectacular and well worth it just for the drive. In the valley here they grow basically everything, from strawberries to corn.

    So loaded up with bananas to give to the monkeys and we arrived....

    Palai Cave is where monks climb up in the network of caves to meditate. At the base of the hill is the monk support rooms (temple, kitchen, sleeping) and legend has it there is a horde of monkeys that live in the cave.

    We arrived at the cave to find a cart with a bunch of uneaten papaya and we unable to attract the monkeys out from their papaya stupor. We guessed that they were too full to be bothered to come beg from us.



    Upside the cave....

    Next we were off to Doi Phra Tang, equipped with a picnic lunch and plenty of refreshments.

    Our first stop was about 1/2 way up the mountain, this is looking back towards Chiang Rai...



    Then a view in the same direction from the parking area just below the top. You can see the road we came up, I don't think there's a straight section more than a few meters long.

    We decided to have lunch to fortify ourselves before the ascent to the top. The ladies made a picnic for us and it was pretty damn good.



    After our repast, we headed to the top

    The steps up...



    This area is were the famous General Lee (not the 'merican one) fought off the Lao insurgents trying to spread the evils of communism to the kind Hmong, Haw and Yao tribes.

    Basically just below the summit, there's a hole in the mountain. There's still a sandbagged gun emplacement, trenches and stuff, but basically the Laos would try and climb up through this small hole in the mountain. General Lee later presented the King a rock from the mountain to show his loyality to Thailand.



    Into Laos and the Mekong beyond.



    Then up to the top...

    If you look carefully, you can see the Mekong in the background. The other side of the mountain is Laos.
