We finally arrived in Chiang mai two days ago. And I must say this has been a whirl wind of a trip. We were in Bangkok for two days. The city was very large but public transportation was easily accessible, in my opinion it was easier to navigate than back home. Thailand is beautiful with its mountains, abundant vegetation, and smiling faces everywhere. There is a wide variety of food and it is delicious! I was very excited to find fresh pineapple and passion fruit juice available locally. One of my favorite dishes here is Morning Glory, it is a light and delicious meal. I finally tried a fruit called purple mangosteen, I can only describe the taste as WOW!
