The old days of Ban Nam Yao Refugee Camp in Nan province

How can we go forward if we do not know where we came from? I love history, so I when traveling in Bo Klua, Nan - Thailand I was happy to meet an older Thai guy running his coffee shop Base 29. I asked him about the meaning of the name. He told that about 40 to 50 years ago Nan province was home to Communist Battlegrounds and at the location of his coffee was a Thai military base .... 29 km from Pua. Talking about that time he told me that his uncle told him stories about Ban Nam Yao Refugee Camp and he directed me to a video on YouTube with photos of the old days at Ban Nam Yao Refugee Camp. Nowadays when passing the small village of Ban Nam Yao along the Yao River on the foot of the mountains of Doi Phu Kha there is not much that makes you remember the refugee camp. For the video have a look at Ban Nam Yao Refugee Camp
