Mae Sot

The Ox pictured 10 km from Mae Sot, yes, she made it! A very beautiful ride over mountains has landed me in the smokey city of Mae Sot, also known as "Little Burma" as the population is 60% Burmese. The smoke is due to extensive seasonal burning of fields and forests; it is dry as a bone here now with a scorching sun.
