    From the village we took a horse trek for two days from The Tibetan horse trekking, with a lady who speaks perfect English, her name is Li-Ii. The trek passed through amazing Mongolian style plains. We slept in a nomad's tent and lived their everyday life for a single day. Interesting and worth every penny.

    Actual Second-Third days

    We woke up early and had to leave this wonderful family. The father walked with us for a few hours before he went back to the village, and we  continued our journey...

    Few hours later we stopped at a tea factory where tea is produced from the local fields leafs. The manager was around my age, and unlike other Burmese people we met in the area, he was an engineer and graduated from a university in Yangon. He was a very funny guy, and gave us a complete tour in the tea factory, explaining about every machine and the trucks that were imported from China. He also invited us to a very good meal, and offered us some tea souvenirs. 

    Again, we didn't walk that much. We stopped a lot, because it was very sunny and hot... We arrived at a local village after dark, and couldn't find a place to sleep. Eventually we found a monastery where a few monks gave us blankets and allowed us to stay for the night.

    The day after we woke up a bit late... We realized our 3 days trip is probably going to extend to at least 4 days, and went to some local school to watch the kids lessons.

    We continued on our way, arrived to a small village, and guess what? another wedding! We didn't want to "crush" another wedding but they invited us to join their celebration, and we spent two hours eating, dancing and celebrating with the newly weds...

    Our second wedding in the trek

    On the 3rd night we stayed in Kunhok, where we were supposed to be on the second night. There's only one place in Kunhok that can act as a guest house, and we stayed there knowing that the last day is going to be the hardest one in this trek . Until then we were very "tranquilo", but had a 9.5 hours climb planned for the next day.
