Our second day in Kratie was taken up mostly with a long drive out to the village. We spent over an hour driving through the forests, finally ending up at a river. We walked over a bridge, then found a group of men sitting around smoking cigarettes at an outdoor drink shop. They gladly lent us their motos for a couple of bucks, and we drove another 10 minutes to the village.
The drive out to the village was great, and we were completely off the grid - no cell phone reception, no electricity, no running water.
