Flat Tire on the Ledo Road

I had a pretty tight travel schedule after we finished the fieldwork in Shinlonga (see Naw Aung and His Sagawa). Went back to Tanai on Sunday after the final wrap-up meeting with the community, and then the six hour drive to Myitkyina on Monday to catch my flight to Yangon on Tuesday to make my Singapore Airlines flight back to New York on Wednesday. Any screw-ups in this itinerary and I don't make it back to New York in time for Christmas (see Merry Christmas).  And then we got the flat driving back to Myitkyina on the Ledo Road...

Well,........did you make it without further incident ? I am thinking of you and hoping your trip home goes more smoothly than this road trip to Myitkyina !
Thanks for sharing all the great photos,videos, and impressions.....
