Stroll through the Kengtung market one last time for a chance to try the Burmese staple breakfast, mohinga, a delicious bowl of noodles mixed with fish, chicken, and other goodies. Hit the road back to Tachilek and Thailand, where you’ll stop again at the Ba Hote village to see Ahi Kham and Boon Mee, two students sponsored by Rustic Pathways. Make your way down to Chiang Rai city and relax with a foot massage, enjoy a Thai feast, and peruse the Chiang Rai Night Bazaar.
At the end of each program, students reflect on their experiences and the issues they engaged with, and talk about how to apply this new understanding to their own worlds. During or after their closing discussion, groups participate in Rustic Ties, a unique and powerful activity that allows students to capture the memories and learning moments of their program to process and share with their communities back home.
