We're back to where we once belonged
Well, as you have already guessed, we are back in Thailand. We really didn't have much else to do in Laos, so we decided to head back to Luang Prabang and take the dreaded night bus to the Huay Xai border crossing. We got on without a hitch, and the overnight bus actually wasn't so bad. 14 hours of driving is much more enjoyable after a gravol or two. So we arrived at the border, and crossed into Thailand, another hitchless move. It all seemed too easy, and then the moment of realization hit me; I forgot my wallet on the night bus... ahhhhhhhhh! So I am currently without a debit card, but luckily Agnes has been graciously loaning me money until my card arrives. It's quite funny actually, what a silly thing to do.
After a short time of hitting my head against a brick wall, we found a bus station and headed to Chiang Mai. We've been here in Chiang Mai for about four days, and it's been really great. We've visited a lot of the main temples, got a massage at the women's prison, watched some Muay Thai boxing, perused several markets, and spent far too much money. Chiang Mai is a really interesting city, and there's been a lot to see and do. We leave tomorrow for the organic farm, but chances are quite good that we'll be back at some point. I'm not sure what to expect with this farm, so you'll just have to hold tight and wait for another entry! I'm quite sure that the farm has internet though, so it shouldn't take too much time.
Fare thee well!
Harvey, your forgetful traveling boy.
