    Excellent write up Brian! Thanks for posting this story!

    I came across the story looking up "Beung Kleung" as I was traveling there with "Dave from the clinic" from Chiang Mai. I'm heading back south to Malaysia now and it sure would have been fun to keep heading south as opposed to going back all the way north to Mae Sot first!
