Where I stayed
Saturday was the King of Thailand's Birthday. It is a holiday all week and Pai is crowded with Thai tourists. I don't care for the traffic jams and fumes, but I am enjoying seeing that the Thai people have discovered what the farangs for so long have known about and created in Pai
That the evening walking market is so very crowded this week is I guess, a good thing for the local merchants. I couldn't even walk so I stopped in for a foot massage to watch the parade of people!
I had a nice reunion with my friends Wat and Jay! We have had dinner a few times. Wat took me on his scooter outside of town. We visited a lovely Burmese style temple, a waterfall and a local Chinese village. Thai families were enjoying the holiday everywhere.
Of course I was happy to visit Jay and Wat's home too. Leo and Singha were very excited to see me! I'll be in Pai, well, until I leave! After traveling full steam since October 17, I really deserve a rest!
