I love to travel all over the globe shopping for textiles to add to my wearable art. I have taught quilting to school children in Nepal, seminole patchwork to seamstresses in Thailand, and jackets and embellishment to quilters in Turkey where I also served as a judge at 2 of their International Quilt Shows. I have created garments for 5 Fairfield and Bernina Fashion Shows and teach classes on embellishment and wearable art. Lately I have been leaning more toward making art quilts.

River Kwai Raft Floating and our Hotel

Walking down the hill to our hotel. The main dining room and kitchen are straight ahead.
The back of some of the guest rooms. Some of them had airconditioning but it wasn't really necessary the night we were there. There were also big fans in the rooms.

View from the river.


We took a speedboat out to the rafts.



We weren't allowed to wear shoes in the hotel and crossing the bamboo could be an "ouch".

The dining area out on the river. That is a bathroom in the corner for the use of tour groups who just come to the restaurant for lunch.

The main dining area.



The snack bar with nice cold sodas.




We took the speed boat out to the rafts for a run.

They tied several rafts together.

There sere several beautiful houses and hotels along our stretch of the river.


Ohhhhh. That feels good.





A classier boat outside an upscale hotel.





Here we go.



Our hotel from the river. Our rooms were on the far right. The cost of the tour for two days, all meals, elephant ride and overnight was 1200 baht. ($35) The same tour booked online from the U.S. was at least $100. We booked it locally the day before we went. I find this variation in price is true pretty much everywhere, and most especially in India. I didn't have to pay extra for a single room either.
