260--Thailand: Trekking in the Hill-Tribes
@ Where`s Cherie?     Dec 10 2004 - 03:08 PST
cherie writes: Diane, Hilda and I were ready for our 3-day trek amongst the hill-tribes of Northern Thailand. Our new friend Hannah got all dolled up for the trek. She’s the type of gal who considers her make-up a necessity—but will never actually call it make-up. During the day Hannah’s lip-stick is “SPF 15”, while at night, the very same lip color is “moisturizer.”

Note: as I make fun of Hannah’s propensity to apply cosmetics, she is also the type of lady who trekked her own pack on her back for 3-days (while I hired a porter to carry my things for $5 a day.) Note: Diane also packed her things the entire trek!
