Fun Adventure

My host was punctual, very well organized, concerned with my well-being and more than fulfilled her responsibilities in showing me Kanchanaburi. At the end of the tour, I was invited to a lovely beach on the River Kwai where she showed me how to make 3 Thai dishes. Lunch on the beach was delicious. It was an excellent end to the tour.
