Location: Chiang Mai, Thailand

MapHi from Chiang Mai, Thailand,

After two days of travelling -- Regina, Calgary, Vancouver, Hong Kong -- we've finally arrived at our destination of Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. We have spent the first couple of days recovering from jetlag and becoming acclimatized to the 70 degree temperature difference. We are staying in a quaint Thai resort close to the University, far away from the tourist area. The gardens are lovely and the weather hovering around 30 degrees. Lots of interesting birds and we keep hearing a peacock, but haven't seen it yet.

Coincidentally, the last couple have days have been graduation at the university, so there has been a bit of chaos -- students with graduation garb, nurses in old-style uniforms etc.

It's Sunday here, so we're off to find a church where English is spoken and then to the Sunday market.

More later.
