Day33

This day we decided to stay in Chiang Mai, catch up with some friends, and generally take it easy.  We started the day by going for a long walk around the city.  As can be seen from the following photos, the cleanup for Loi Kratong took a lot of effort.

We saw this interesting mosque in downtown Chiang Mai, the sign in multiple scripts, including Chinese.

Steamed goat in Chinese Herbs!  Must be good … put I’ll pass for breakfast.

Getting some sleep.

No Alcohol, right?  Ok, nice idea – but not really enforced.  Having said that, we didn’t see any trouble anywhere in Thailand due to alcohol.

Lunch with our friends – wow, it was great food in one of the largest malls in Chiang Mai.

While we were shopping, I happened to notice a new Asus Eee PC for sale.  These laptops had been rumoured, but I hadn’t actually heard that they had been released. I was very tempted to buy it right there and then, but I am not the kind of person to do that.  So I took note of the details, and dreamt about how this laptop would really help me.  Our previous travel laptop was more than four years old now, and it struggled running the Windows Live Write software, which I was using to publish the web blogs.

Some of the ancient ruins right in the center of the city.

We changed hotels for the last night, as we wanted to reduce our accommodation costs.  This was the view from our cheap room.
