For those who might be interested in the potential monkey population of my adventures in Thailand: I realized this weekend that the odd hooting sounds I can hear in the bamboo forest over the back fence at my house here might POSSIBLY be gibbons. They might also be frogs, the jury is out.
On a more urban note, here's a street scene from Chiang Mai, market streets near the Ping River.
My work is picking up, realizing that I have only two more weeks. I spent yesterday afternoon making a Thailand map, which turned out super duper cool (if I do say so myself). I was inspired by the awesome maps that are sprinkled throughout the Robert Jordan books, fine pen and ink work with textures and little images in the corners.
