We wound our way here and there and ended up across the river where Big was born and lived for a few years in an army camp as his Dad was a Doctor and moved around.
One of the monks came to talk to us and he had done a lot of the carving in the temple.
We stopped at a hot springs
and sat with our feet in the water for awhile, just so lovely and my feet felt so soft afterwards.
You can pay 40 THB ($18) for an hour in a spa with the hot springs water! Next time!
We continued along the river on the Thailand side, with Burma on the other, and in some places the river was only several meters wide. They wash in it and boats carry people back and forth!
We stopped at Big's cousins sisters house and we saw them weaving using huge looms. It was fascinating to watch, feet going up and down. One hand going up and down while the other lifts the threads. And another one spinning the yarn!
