Guaranteed to Die

Rice crops. Mountain tops. And the many sights you see along the way. Motorbikes, water buffalo and province children at play. Papasan squatting smoking his pipe

Mamasan chewing beetle nut. First sight of terrace farming is a delight to the eyes. No one pays much attention to the Jolly Green Giants with hangrenades and guns

As they pass bye. Taking in the beautifully unique and magnificent Asian terrace landscaping designs. Booby traps, IED's and fully equipped gunships guarantee many more will die
