Here are some more of my favorite moments from her day trip of Bangkok, central and northern Thailand. The resort staff Mae Hong Son Resort: I love the resort where we stay.
Most of the staff there are Karen hill tribe women and their friendliness is much of the fun of staying here; we get to benefit from the many years Kasma has been on her tours and formed lasting relationships with people all over Thailand.
We use this lovely resort for our command center as we spend the days exploring Mae Hong Son. View from our room Sunset at the resort Many of the rooms have lovely views of the rice fields, such as the one above from our room last year. While staying in Mae Hong Son, we always take one day to go up the extremely windy roads to the little town of Ban Rak Thai see below.
This past year some activity in the fields directly off the road caught our eye. It was great fun, wandering through the fields on raised mounds in-between the crops, crossing over a rickety bridge, really just a few sticks of bamboo, over a stream, and meeting farmers and a woman resting in her home, right amongst the fields.

Mae Hong Son province, in particular, is quite lovely and people who fly into Mae Hong Son city miss the scenic beauty. On one of the routes from Chiang Mai via Mae Sariang there are curves: We stop at a vista point where we saw the lovely view to our left.
Lisu girls At one stop with fabulous views, we came across these Lisu girls, dressed in traditional garb, available to be photographed, for a fee.
On this last trip, they approached Kasma and asked for a few baht and she told them: The next thing we knew, they were enthusiastically throwing themselves in the air for us to photograph.
