Once at the market, we bought some toys for the kids from the hill tribes. Mel and I bought some dolls for the girls and dinosaurs for the boys.
We then kept on driving until we reached a hut on the side of the road where First and Sammy prepared us some lunch.
We hopped back into the truck and drove to some beautiful waterfalls where we got to go for a swim.
After our swim, we drove to the top of the mountain to begin our 3-day trek
We walked approx. 6 kms through the jungle, mostly downhill, until we reached the first hill tribe village.
When we got there, we handed out toys to the kids.
They seemed so happy, it was a great moment.
There is no electricity or western bathrooms here. Just cold water and a hole in the ground.
We had another delicious meal and then we made a fire and told stories and jokes while knocking some Singhas, Changs & Leo (Thai beers)
