Here are some pictures from a quick trip to Chiang Mai
OK. To cut a long story short -
Adam, Caitlin and their kids, Erin and Angus are in Chiang Mai at the moment for work. I used to be in the Army with Adam; and his Mother in Law is Sue who I worked with at Chakola. Sue and David used to live in Borneo also, while I was living there, and Kanjana and I visited them last year. So we were visiting Adam in Chiang Mai.
Monk Boun Savat and Monk Boun Thavee have finished their postings / their projects in the Karen villages where they have been living. They were also back in Wat Morn Thien in Chiang Mai. They plan to finish being monks soon. Phra Boun Savat has been a monk for 17 years and Phra Boun Thavee for a similar time. They are both from a very small minority group in Laos, but wish to stay in Thailand for the time being. I have being trying to come up with ideas to get them a job and thus enable them to get a work visa so they can stay.
I needed to get my passport stamped also. So I drove, via Chiang Dao etc to Mae Sai and back to Chiang Mai via Chiang Rai and Phayao. Good drive. The monks came also.
Hmmm, Kanchana actually started thinking of moving to Chiang Mai on this trip.???
OK. That's enough.
