Day four was a much more interesting drive then day three. We left Tha Khaek a little after sun up and breakfast at the hotel. We continued north-west for two hours before turning East towards Vietnam and the farm. Filled up with petrol and a few snacks and we were back on the road again.
We stopped at a few look outs but as per usual it was very hazy.
At one of the places we stopped I was pleased to see a dog truck approaching en route to the dinner plates of the Vietnamese. I had told Dad and Des about The Bucket Trucks earlier so it was good timing.
As per usual the drive was very nice and there was always something to see or take a photo of. At least these little piggies were not (yet) off to market like the dogs. Here they are running allllll the way home.
We arrived into Lak Sao at midday….
… and checked into my home away from home, the Souriya hotel.
After lunch we headed out to the farm to get proceeding underway for another harvest. It was an exciting day as the results were the best that we had achieved so far with some trees showing good strains of dark wood.
The rest of the afternoon was spent cutting down trees and sorting them ready for the carving crew who were due to start in the morning.
Next: Day V. Tree harvesting and Dad and Des explore Laxsao by motorbike.
