Same same, but different

Yesterday we had a pretty relaxed day wandering around Chiang Mai and getting a Thai massage.

This is a picture of Wat Chedi Luang, in the middle of the old city. Because it’s one of the biggest and most popular temples, it has some of the best people watching I’ve seen so far.

At night we decided to check out the hip university area, which coincidentally is where I (Emily) stayed 8 years ago. There used to not be much over there, but now it’s filled with fancy, bizarre malls and clubs/bars. We wandered around feeling under dressed for most of the places that actually had people in them, but then we found this fancy beer bar made out of a shipping container that could have easily been in Hayes Valley in San Francisco. Road House was even playing on TV. That area was totally too cool for school.

Today we took a fabulous cooking class out on an organic family farm. They taught us how to cook 5 (!) dishes and gave us a recipe book, so if you’d like a recipe, let us know.

We’re leaving for our trek tomorrow for three days, so we’ll be mostly out of touch. Once we’re back on Monday night… We don’t know what we’re doing since we’re having trouble finding a spot on the train to Bangkok. 😦
