The past few days we've spent with Billy and Kelly of Ambassadors In Sport, going from school to school teaching soccer skills, teaching about God, and generally having a riotous good time with our young Thai friends. Soccer joins the nations together in a common bond, more than anything else I've seen.
Today was spent up in the Chinese tea village of Mae Salong. I rode in the back of the pickup up some intense mountain scenery and bordering hilltribes.
Tomorrow will be a relaxing morning before the insanity - a 4 hour van ride back to Chiang Mai, an hour flight to BKK, then the day after I catch my flight for Amman, Jordan! Which begs the question...do I really know what I'm about to get myself into?
I'm not sure how long it will be before I have reliable internet access again...by then, I'll probably have my first views of the Middle East for you. Enjoy - steve g.
