Here's the latest on the Burma trek:

At the moment looks like 8 people coming, which is $480 each (plus $20 for those wanting a single room), or if 7 coming it's $510 each, +$20 again for singles. Please let me know if you still think you can come - give me an indication how likely you think it is you'll come. No need to pay yet.

COST (in-country):
4+1 US$ 545,-- per person in twin sharing room
5+1 US$ 540,-- per person in twin sharing room
6+1 US$ 510,-- per person in twin sharing room
7+1 US$ 480,-- per person in twin sharing room
Single supplement US$ 25,--
(I got the trip re-costed for airtravel so we have more time for photos. Anyone prefer the train? Thi Ha says you can't sleep on Burmese trains).
