Janjira goes solo

Today we are letting Janjira take Julie and Vicky up to Kaew Komon cave, her fist ‘solo’ experience of being a tour guide. I am so proud of her! At the tender age of 13, a young girl from a hilltribe village was not afraid to go by herself with two foreigners, for many a seemingly daunting experience but for Janjira it was no problem in fact she was so excited.
Damn……..I didn’t have my camera! The mosquito extermination squad are going round the town and have just been down our road with huge vaporizers blasting some kind of chemical smoke through the houses. Everyone has to come out of their house because of the fumes. The smoke looks like houses are on fire, so with the crowds on the street some adorning face masks, it becomes quite a scene looking like the aftermath of a bomb. In Thai style they come with a truck with a huge megaphone blasting about, well I’m not sure about what. According to Pat they are spreading awareness about Hemorrhagic fever, something small children can get from mosquito bites. So they’re blasting them outta town! Wish I could have taken a video of it.
