Wanderings in Chiang Mai

Here is a photo collection of my first week in Chiang Mai

Day 1 Monday

The “main event” was being introduced to Northern Thai food. I was told this place was “very Thai”- it was outside and no foreigner was in site. My favorite dish was the sticky rice. I got to roll it up in a ball and then dip it in curry. I enjoyed “playing” with my food.” Thai food has lots of chili so my body was a little shocked but I enjoyed the kick.

This cafe was called “Into the Woods Cafe.” My inner musical theatre nerd was very happy.

Day 3 Wednesday

I have learned that “green tea” in Thailand is more like a green tea latte. This one was the size of my head and the color of a milky way pen. Only 25 baht.

I didn’t go see the holy object- my mom and aunt were super curious!

This black and gold temple was near a coffee shop. I just love the contrast.

Love me some street art.

Day 4 Thursday

This was my day “off” so naturally I had three Thai iced teas. I bought exciting things like conditioner and razors and even managed to find a curly hair product! A CURLY HAIR PRODUCT IN ASIA, YA’LL.

Just look at it.

Day 6 Saturday

I taught for six hours. During my lunch break I saw this charming sign so I took a photo on my iPhone.

I also posted these on social media of my “artistic challenge.” It was sort of fun and different than anything I have done. I want to try another color or two.
