This morning Pat got back from a 1 day trip up to the Lawa hilltribe villages with 2 tourists - Ralph and Brum. They happened to be walking past our office, Pat was sitting outside and started talking to them, I was inside still busy making posters. We introduced our project to them and they seemed very interested as they wanted to see and experience the ‘real’ thing. When they came back this morning they were very impressed by the trip and really enjoyed it. In their own words it was ‘AWWwwwwwesome’.
They also had tremendous fun getting there and back – motorbikes, windy mountain roads, rainy season, copious amounts of wet mud – see the pictures- enough said! Ralph said they really liked the fact that it was totally spontaneous, it wasn’t all planned out with fixed itineraries, that the host community didn’t put on a show for them, but just carried on with their daily lives.
