Video Panning for Tin in Thailand

Video Panning for Tin in Thailand
I took this video when I was in Ranong, Thailand of a women panning for Tin in the river near the Hot Springs. It was funny, as my friend is saying to me, that what she is panning for is more expensive than Gold. I am thinking, if this is the case, I am going to jump in and join her.

Ranong is about 10 hours by bus from Bangkok, a nice place to visit, and the Hot Springs is special. I went to Ranong to do a visa run, as I went into Burma or Myanmar for 10 minutes, came back and I have 30 more time to stay in Thailand.

We also went to the Island of Koh Chang, an Agro-tourism place, full of Germans, sort of a German Expat colony.
