Muang Sing

the last day i visited the seuadeang village and the houayhow village (akhadeejor)
there i drove uphill as far as possible and then i shifted my mtb on a jungle ridge. what a phantastic view.
then i met some hmong people from the kokmouang village they were carrying some wood for the house building to their village. they wondered how i got up here so heigh :))
they gave me an advice to should stop here and hike uphill. this i have done :))
it was very nice trekking their.
then i drove back the jungle path downhill. while the hmong people where carrying the wood downwards. they even could remember me at the market at the next days :))
funny. so i think in the next years you will see some minority people doing mtb in the jungle :))
ok - perhaps in the next 20 years...
lets see.
then i went to the sopeemai village.
the people there invited me for some green tea and then i paid one beer lao, then i visited their house and they cooked for me.
that was the first time i ate a dog. it was really good with a lot of rice and roasted chilli - wonderful dinner. i also have to smoke with them and drink alot of rice whisky (lao lao)
they wanted that i slept there but i felt a little bit scared, so i drove in the dusk drunk home for more then one hour:))
i guesthouse is a guesthouse. and some guide told me i was lucky that nothing happend to me, because there are many drug addiced people (opium) they need some money.....
