I spent a few days in Hsipaw which is in Chen state getting close to the Chinese border. There are clashes between the Chen rebel’s and Myanmar police occurring regularly. I was told that we were a few kilometres away from the Rebel position. I hiked about three hours around town, fields and forests during my time here. Iris remained in Mandalay working at the hospital. Like most places in Myanmar Hsipaw is a peaceful and friendly place.
