Tourist Rescue and Care Team in Pai, Thailand
"Tip", the man waving the bottle of Thai whiskey, told me that in the past this dark stretch of road had been the scene a few tourist muggings by the local gangsters. The village installed a street light and these villagers hang out into the wee hours of the night beside the road with a campfire in order to keep the area safe.
Tip also leads off-road multi-day treks on motorcross bikes to the an area near the Burma border where he grew up. I really want to go on one of these next time I'm in Pai.
