We're in Chiang Mai now. It's 36 degrees out here. How's the cold treating you??? We took the night train from Bangkok. Corey thinks it is like something out of a Graham Green story. Shina found the luxurious toilet facilities which empty out onto the train tracks below to be a fascinating waste management method - we will post a video of it later.
Yesterday, we took a great Thai cooking course where we learned to make many Thai dishes. The instructors kept the two of us entertained throughout.
For Christmas Eve, we decided to treat ourselves to something really special. We went all out this year!! Really splurged - each of us having a whopper and fries from Burger King. Reminded us both of x-mas eves past. Corey can still taste the greasy residue left from the juicy burger.
This morning Corey rented us a motor bike so we could tour around Chiang Mai and visit some parks as well as other places of interest. However, the years don't seem to be treating Mr. Corey so kindly as he woke up with a pain in his neck (not me - mind you) that he just can't seem to shake. So, we may have to change our plans a bit.
We're back to Bangkok and then headed to Angor Wat soon. We're both excited about ending our travels stranded on a beach somewhere warm and sunny.
Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying your holiday season shared with friends, family, laughter and great food! We are beginning to tire of Thai food - and starting to dream of juicy turkey coupled with mashed potatoes drowning in gravy - so please, don't get us any gifts - just eat some turkey for us.
