Just got done with a solid 3 weeks in Ban Don Jiang, Thailand. Don Jiang is an organic agriculture village. I stayed with my Mae (mom), Paw (dad), and PiLong (older host brother) in their home. My host family grows rice, cabbage, mangoes, guava, papaya, and they also have two cows! Truly every part of their farm is sustainable – they use the manure from the cows as a natural fertilizer on the fields. No pesticides necessary!
I had such a blast learning a little more Thai and also staying with such friendly, smiling people. I will miss them so so so much.
I am back in Chiang Mai until Sunday – then off to Cambodia to tour the Angkor Wat Temples!
