Today I took a bus from Mo Chit to Chayapum a 5 hour drive. Here Richard and Tawan are picking me up to take me to there little village an other 1 hour by car.I feel very welcome here just like last year. Tammie ( 15 year old daughter of Tawan) cleaned here room so I can stay in there. So enjoying the local food and a beer in the evening. Richard and Tawan live in a real small village, around one hundred families. Opposite the house is the local school.  Monday Richard and I hang around the house and take care of Sammie (The son of Richard and Tawan). Tawan is going to to a city to buy stuff for a friend who is going to open a little shop where they sell food.

Ricahrd and I go by moped to explore the mountains which are on a one hour drive. In this area there is a lot of sugarcane produced. Suddenly we see a sign which tells us that there is a cave a little bit further. After arriving there we walk around a little and find the cave. But this is not easy to access. So go back to the moped and there we meet a monk. He tells us that up the hill there is better access to the cave. We are surprised because in the cave, who has a very big chamber, is a temple. So Richard does some praying and I take some pictures. Then we go back home to have beer and food.

Richard and I taking a bus back to BKK. Richard needs to do a visa run for extending his visa. I have to go back for applying for my China visa.

24-01-2013 Friday

I tried to get all the documents and tickets for China but I could not get a ticket from Burma to China. Now I have to change my plans. If I want to get the China visa it will take four days from Monday and that means I have to stay a long time in Bangkok. And I still want to do some diving so no China maybe late on in the trip. When I left for Thailand I already was not in the best mental state and thing did not change a lot. And these kind of things don’t help at all.
