If you are a foreigner living in Thailand, you'll probably be familiar with the concept of a 'visa run'. Depending on what visa you enter Thailand with, you may be required to leave Thailand after 30, 60 or 90 days. There are a few points that you can do this, but two of the most common are the crossings at Mae Sot and Mae Sai. Both these crossings require that you walk over a bridge, enter Burma and get your passport stamped.

This month I decided to do my crossing at Mae Sai as it can be done in one (albeit long) day from Chiang Mai. 13 hours later I returned home.

This Podcast is a short interview I did with Tasanee founder of Safe Haven Orphanage on the Thai/Burma border. It was recorded in December whilst motorbiking around Northern Thailand with my sister. The interview is also contained in the much longer Podcast 1483km by motorbike in North Thailand. Any questions or comments, please post them on our blog at: www.earthoria.com

Sounds only. I recorded this at around 7.30pm on a weekday night at our local vegetarian restaurant on Suthep Road in Chiang Mai. I popped to the restaurant and had a Khao Soi - one of the traditional northern Thai 'curry' dishes. Dinner cost 25THB (about $0.60) and was incredibly tasty. As I ate I was treated to some wonderfully cheesy background music, as you will hear in the recording!
