This should make me homesick for the Uk seeing this building work going on, but for some reason it doesnt
Image

Image
The bricklayers here are certainly a lot prettier than the ones I work with in the UK

Image
I take a left onto a concrete track and this gets steep very quickly

A dirt section is encountered along the way

I reach the Mae Taeng river
Image

On my first four trips to Chiang Mai I always went on a four day three nights trek and rafted along this river a couple of times, I have no desire to do it again but it was fun at the time

Thats cheating, we had to do our rafting down here on bamboo rafts.
A fun day was had exploring some new roads plus there are lots more turnings out here for future trips
