Yep, just got back from over 2 months of looking for shade in Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. Sure was nice- the shade and the people- beautiful countries. Started out in Bangkok- Khosan Road and yummy orange juice from the smiling orange juice ladies on the police station corner, and then across town to see my dentist-2 visits and $540 included a cap and 3 fillings and a cleaning. Well a couple of days later Bob and Kevin showed up and we visited Michael K. and generally had a couple of nights on the town before they headed off south and I took the train to Chiang Mai and bus to Pai, where we all got rooms in the same guesthouse as our friend Gypsie. Pai is a nice valley town with an expat population that supports a music scene, and there was a raegae festival while we were there that attracted a lot of people. Gypsie continued to go daily to the beautiful hotsprings until we all left for Labong Prabang.
