Coleen’s Travel Diary

Location: Chiang Mai, Thailand

MapStarted our day off with a trip up the Holy Mountain to Doi Suthep temple. It's 1,000 metres above sea level and has a lovely view of the City.

The pictures we took, just can't adequately capture the beauty!

Then visited a couple of beautiful textile studios, where we saw textiles dating to the 1800's. Beyond beautiful!

Spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying the warmth, spinning and reading.

We're off to the netherlands of Laos tomorrow so that I can learn about sericulture at a silk farm. We won't have access to the internet, so probably won't be making any entries until after the 19th.

We are well and having a great time. There is fighting between Cambodia and Thailand over five miles of border and a temple. We are far away from the fighting. We have heard that the King of Thailand has intervened and that hopefully this matter is resolved. At the moment it is not affecting our plans.
