Well my time in Pia is coming to and end,back to Chiang Mia tomorrow for a couple of nights before travelling onto Chiang Rai for a week or two,then Laos

Have been here for 8 nights and had a really good time the scenery,the guesthouse also has been a good place to relax,but I think the best thing has been exploring the region on the scooter even if was underpowered,the views of the mountains covered in swirling mist,the terraced rice paddies,storms on mountains in the distance have been really good to see but hard to capture the beauty on film and for the most the roads are really quite good as long as you don't get off the beaten track, which means the dirt tracks which are bit washed out due to the monsoon

The weather generally has been quite consistent ,every afternoon about 2 pm the scattered storms start and it is the luck of the draw if you get wet or not depending where you are and where the storm is !! The temperature ranges widely depending on the weather and if you are a valley or on top of a huge mountain, most of the mountains you cross are around 1600 metres and the valley floors about 500 metres,so are a really steeps climbs,so a temp gauge yesterday in Pia the read 36" but on the top of the ranges in the mist I reckon it would lucky to be 20"

Well that's me done,having a ball and see you in a couple of days from Chiang Mia
