So, Kanchanaburi, Thailand. We spent a weekend in this provence with some friends, it was the first time going back there since our OEG orientation. The hostel we stayed at was a really nice, awesome little set of bungalows on stilts in a marsh… perfect setting. The town of Kanchanaburi its self has an awesome feel; a small, laid back little town, that relies on tourism, but stills feels a bit like it’s off the beaten path. A beautiful place either way. The one full day we had, we rented motorbikes and drove about 50km north in the provence to Erawan Falls, pretty beautiful falls. They were huge. Plus it was freakin hot and the water felt awesome.
In an effort to continue my portraits of Thai people, I tried to slip a few ‘faces’ into this one…

Such a happy little baby, playing in the falls. Learning how to say “may I please take your photo” in Thai has become very useful.Offerings for a big old dead tree, and a spirit house.The fifth level of Erawan.Hardly working? One of the ranger/lifeguard guys at Erawan really enjoying his job. 🙂 I guess at the higher levels, that take longer to hike to, you don’t have to worry about as many fat whiteys drowning…
