Behind it, the Mighty Mekong.
Fierce outboard motors.
On the way tOO Mae Sai, stOpped at the Hall Of Opium. Very impressive. LOads of infO abOut Opium (O) and marijuana. FrOm the beginning in the times Of the macedOnians up til the present. InfO abOut the farm recultivation prOjects and reeducation prOgrams fOr the people whOse lives depended upOn the prOduction of O. Same as in LaOs, where they had tO destrOy (?) O farms and grOw viable crOps instead. Middle east, EurOpe, Asia, the expanse of O was (is?) great. Apparently, tOday, Afghanistan is the tOp prOducer of illegal Opium. The Only legal producer Of Opium today, is Australia. Plenty of stuff can be made from O, mOrphine is from O, but herOin and cOcaine is also made from the stuff tOO. NO pics allOwed inside the museum, but i highly recOmmend it.
