Waterfall and morning walk
Views of the Mork Fah waterfall in the national park we went to this past weekend. Was actually a little chilly for swimming, but lovely for splashing around.
This is me and my friend Laura, the woman who instigated this whole trip to Thailand business. We've known each other for a number of years, and she's one of the most brillant and amusing people I know.
It's morning here. Slept like a baby last night again, and am starting to enjoy the walk in to the ISDSI office. There's a little vegetarian restaurant that has tasty interesting snacks (today I picked up some mung beans in coconut milk for my mid-morning snack), there's a beautiful view of the golden temple spires of the wat at the top of Doi Suthep (the mountain near Chiang Mai), there's an antiques store full of exotic-looking whatnots, and the traffic is becoming less shocking to my western sensibilities.
