Sunrise at Chingphoi

After a bit of rest, and rice beer,* back in Shiyong, Phejin, her sister Bonglih, and I paid a visit to the nearby village of Chingphoi about 3 hours walk away.  In Chingphoi we stayed with another relative of Phjin’s in their traditional bamboo built house.  Perched out on a spur which jets into the valley below, Chingphoi setting, while lower than neighboring Shiyong, offers spectacular views of the valley below.  The morning light streaming through the clouds in to the valley bellow was absolutely surreal.


*A reference I’ll leave intentionally vague to protect the future political careers and dignity of any of the participants, suffice to stay, rice beer contains alcohol.
