Sangklaburi - Sanepong - Laiwo - Jakae - Lay Tong Ku - Pueng Klueng jungle walk & Karen village homestay: 11 - 17 April 2007
A house in Lay Tong Ku Karen village, south of Umphang district. at 6:30 in the morning.
Padauk flowers in the tree. Padauk trees produce flowers three or four times during the Lunar newyear season, in April and May. Karen newyear this year was already finished 2 weeks earlier. Padauk wood (Mai Padook) is also used for house building and furniture making.
Drinking water for everyone. In the old days things were made from the naturally available materials such as earth, mud, bamboo, and wood. This water pot was provided with a plastic cup.
This farm hut seemed to be made without using nails. Bamboo is the major material for farm huts - smaller than a house in the village proper.
On the trail from Lay Tong Ku to Pueng Klueng Karen village. We were again on the trail for the fifth day. There were some going up on this trail. It was again a bit hot, and this leaveless tree was a sign of summer. We heard gibbon calls from a distance.
At 8 a.m. we were heading toward a view point from where we could see, under the clouds, Doi San Min mountain on the Thai-Myanmar border.
