"Forever China In a Corner of Thailand"
I just ran across this excellent Time: Asia article about Doi Mae Salong. It gives a great description of the feel and history of Doi Mae Salong "proper". Of course, we actually live on the outskirts of town in an Akha village, but it's still a very interesting part of our experience here. Sometimes when Paul and I are coming down the mountain, it feels like we're re-entering Thailand after being in the "little China" that is Doi Mae Salong.
