A monk at the Golden Buddah in Bangkok
sorry, that is the only pic you get for now as it is taking forever to load and i don;t want to waste my vacation loading pics...
We are now in Cheng Mai. We all love it here. Much better than Bangkok. This is what i pictured Thailand would be lick. Much more rural and cleaner here. Lots of trees shading the streets. Cute resturants and bars that look very authentic. We had a tuk tuk driver take us out of the city today for some shopping of the hilltribe handy craft products. We got some nice things and the driver was awesome. He took us whereever we wanted to go and waited everytime. We are pretty sure he got commisions at the store, but we didn't care, we liked the places he took us.
After shopping in the morning we headed back to the hotel to refresh. Mom got a massage for $3... seriosly... she said it was amazing. We found a really cute place for dinner, it was outdoors but covered and had amazing ambiounce. The food was good too and a pitcher of pina colodas was only $2, so 2 pitchers later Karen and I headed to the night bazarre. It is so cool. So many stalls it is almost overwhelming. Everything you could imagine is for sale. I found some amazing lights for my house and now i just need to figure out how to get them home as they are HEAVY. didn't buy them yet, gonna go check on shipping tomorrow.
We were just headed back to the hotel to go to bed when we discovered an internet cafe... can't beat 30 minutes for $1.
