Sawatdee Kha! Hello!
I hope you don’t mind, but I am going to back track to PV’s recent trip. We have been back for a week and half, and so much as happened (office renovations, a new intern and intensive thai lessons, elephant adventure day). Nevertheless I want to share this entry I wrote while we were about mid way through the trip. We drove nearly 600km through the mountains in the new PV truck. We visited the Karen first and then another hilltribe, the Karenni. The Karen (at Chrestos) have a very established studio, but the Karenni are just getting started. Each group has their own specific language. Great experience. I will be back to lead a team of American service volunteers in October.
