After our tour of the hospital we went to a restaurant on the Mae Ping River
The road to Doi Suthep is narrow and windy. Everyone made it up and back without getting sick. The Thais say you have not visited Chiang Mai until you visit Doi Suthep. So, for the students, they have officially visited Chiang mai. The temple is the most beautiful temple in Chiang Mai. It sits at the very top of a mountain. You have to climb hundreds of steps to get up to the temple. For me, I take the lift to the top but of course you have to pay for this form of transportation. The students all hiked the steps. I am sure they will feel it tomorrow morning when they get out of bed.
For dinner we had pork pan. This time we did it at the college on electric tabletop grills & hot pots. We had chicken, pork, shrimp, squid, mushrooms, veggies and fruit. Everyone had a great time being "social". This is what the Thai's call it when you sit around conversing over food. They nibble on food for hours. We also had fun singing Karaoke. The students blamed their craziness tonight on the Dramamine that they took earlier in the day. I am not sure that was the cause or not but they were certainly silly and having a good time. Several of our buddies from the past also made an appearance tonight. It was really good to see them again.
