I’ve been out of touch for a while…

Currently I’m north of Chiang Mai in a place called Tha Ton. We have spent the last few days at a centre outside a town called Fang. A place which the Rough Guide describes as "An ugly place, you’re far better passing it by..". The center deals mainly (I think) with people from the local hill tribes, the Shan and the Akha and I think helps displaced refugees in the area. If you want to know exactly why we were there then I’d have to reply that it one of Katies "things" (you’d have to know her to know what I mean, her parents are moving there to teach English amongst other things, but I digress…). I spent most of the time there sweating and failing to understand people but yesterday I got roundly beaten at football by people who are half my height. Some of whom actually appear to be quite good players, but will never hit the big time because they weren’t fortunate enough to have been brought up in the slums of Liverpool and didn’t spend they youths robbing cars.
Tha Ton is quite a nice place, right up on the Thai Burmese border. We might be catching a boat along the river for a bit. I’ll keep posting and I might get Katie to do some writing when I get bored.
