We did all the things we usually do: swim, lie under the sun, listen to the trees, watch the stars while listening to the trees, swim again at night, talk about books, and laugh. There was a new person in the middle of it; it felt completely natural. Maybe because she also comes from, and is made of, so many similar memories of water, trees and skies.
So we hugged elephants, discovered a magic tree, swam in the sunset, ate as much as we could, photographed each other, did yoga side by side, followed a squid, and talked so much that you kept doing it while sleeping (...).
Wait. Does life / friendship get any better than that?

We all took a plane to another country and to another life now... I think about those people, up there in that small village, in the hills of northern Thailand. I can visit them and live in their houses and share moments with them, discover the way they live and see their colors; but can we really communicate, if most of them will never have the opportunity to come here, and dive into another world, as I was so lucky to do?
Northern Thailand magic... It made me feel very alive to learn so much, surrounded by people who simply enjoy what they do, and the way they live. Thank you Sunshine Network for the adventure. This morning when checking the contact sheets at the lab in the center of Bangkok, I felt lucky to travel with a camera; sometimes images really save and protects my emotions better than words. More (color) images to come.
