I just came back from a ten-day official trip to Lampang Province in Northern Thailand. Our office brought a team of archaeologists, historians, and the like there to an excavation in a rock art site, and basically I just hung around.
Not exactly a pleasant experience being in the mountains as I'm not an outdoor person. Ugh, the mosquitoes feasted on me, I probably need a blood transfusion now.
Anyway, aside from complaining incessantly (which must've driven my colleagues nuts), I also had the chance to visit a village, talk to a few people there, and checked out Lampang's old houses and temples.
Here are some photos... I experimented with black and white in this trip.
