Off the beaten path!
What a magical experience to experience authentic rural life! So often I've seen men in villages hanging out in cafes while the women did all the work.

Myanmar trekking
Thank you. Its alway lovely to hear your thoughts. It was truly off the beaten track which was the most amzing thing about it. In hindsight we did walk a lot but when we were there, and don't get me wrong my legs were very sore but I think our legs got used to the pain as we walked and we were too distracted by our surroundings. It was the most amazing experience we have had. I still think about Burma now a couple of weeks later. Yes, they did work together but we all had the feeling the women had it harder, exposed in the feilds all day hacking away and were the ones were the most servere disfigurement from their work. Lol, P.
