Kanchanaburi trip - Hell Fire Pass

The children slept really well last night. Not a sound from them all night and many needed to be woken up for showers and breakfast at 7:00!

After a great breakfast we headed to Hell Fire Pass (only 15 minutes away) and the museum inspired a lot of discussion about the stories of the prisoners of war and locals forced to cut through the enormous amount of rock. The walk back up to the museum from the bottom of Hell Fire Pass to the museum was not easy but gave them a good appreciation of what the labourers, suffering from disease and malnutrition, must have gone through each day. 

We're back at the resort now about to have an Issarn lunch before taking the train into Kanchanaburi along the railroad built during World War 2.

Here are some photos from today so far:
