A multi-family road-trip - to Mae Sot, with a mission!

Last weekend some of my closest friends here in Chiang Mai came along to the Mae Sot trash dump, to help survey 50 recipients of new piglets to raise through the Piglets for Progress initiative.

My friend Gillian Caldwell has written about our trip on her blog.

Some salient results from our survey are discussed on the Piglets Blog.

Note to self: next time my son comes along, pay more attention to nurturing a connection with some of the children there. Some toys might help!
