A young Thai man, Chokchai, (which means “Lucky” in Thai) who we met last 2 years ago in Lampang, has wanted to go into the camps with me for 2 years. He told me when I got to Lampang this trip that he was going with me into the camps for sure this trip. I was really happy to have him go with me. It is always easier to have a Thai speaking travel companion. I have gone by myself many times, but appreciate how much easier it is with someone who speaks the language traveling with me. We made plans to leave on November 24th at 6 am. One option is to hire a truck and driver to take us all the way to Mae Sariang, but I didn’t want to spend the money. The less I spend, the more I can give to the children and families in need. Another option is to take a bus from Lampang to Chiang Mai and catch another bus into Mae Sariang, and therefore I decided to go by bus the entire way.
