Well, the trip is nearing its end. It's hard to think about going back to work shortly after I get back. Completely different mindset!
We have been enjoying a lot of relaxation time in Chiang Mai. We have been reading, drinking coffee, shopping at the market and watching really cheesy American movies on our tv. I'm bummed we can't watch any Olympics.
We visited the Hilltribe Museum yesterday which was interesting. Today we went to the silk factory and the silver factory. It was really great seeing how they make silk and to see all the people in the factory sitting at their space doing the silver work by hand. Wow, a lot goes into both silk and silver! Then we shopped at their silk and silver stores of course.
Thailand has been such an amazing place to visit. I'm so glad I came here. The people are really nice (especially at our guesthouse in Chiang Mai!) and the culture is fascinating. I'm not sure if I will return because there are so many other places I want to visit. I wouldn't mind coming back if I absolutely had to though! It wouldn't be hard to twist my arm.
We leave Chiang Mai early tomorrow morning and fly to Bangkok. I fly out of Bangkok at 11:55 p.m. I layover in Tokyo and then LA. I will be arriving home in Minneapolis late afternoon on Monday. Long flights!!
See you soon!
