(Written by Him)
We had set aside 3 days and 2 nights for KB, including getting to and from. We in-fact spent an extra day & night, so taken were we with the charm of rural Thailand. The monsoon season in Thailand was also particularly heavy this year with extreme flooding in neighbouring Burma. This rain made it difficult to do much of anything in the afternoons and we were restricted to morning activities only. Our first day itinerary consisted of the World War II museum, the bridge, Burma - Thailand Railway museum and the POW cemetery. We set off early in the ply-board "side-car" of our new driver's scooter.
