Thank you Lonely Planet, you know how to party

Chiang Mai has been great to us. Shoot, Thailand has been great to us... The weather is a hot 85 degrees here, it's cheap, and easy to get around. And so much to do... The past few days this is what we have been up to...

Remember that movie place I was telling you about with the private mini theater and you rent the room... well we went the other day. We walked up these creepy stairs down a dark hall way, and we came to this...

It was awesome! We watched Up In The Air in our very own private room. We had these ghetto recliners but we felt like Joey and Chandler on Friends with their chairs so we felt kind of cool.

Remember the Thai cooking class I told you about....

We went! This was our instructer Tdom, we called him Tom, because Tdom is hard to pronounce and sounds like Tom.

We learned to cook 6 different dishes and I must say I was good at the end of it, AND I actually enjoyed it... crazy right! I took tons of pictures and they took pictures of us in action and will be on their website in a few weeks, I'll post the link when they go up so you can see me workin' the wok.

Remember the night safari I told you about....

This was the shuttle bus that took us there. It was seriously wild and a bit creepy. Some animals just came right up to the giraffe painted tram. We did see some pretty cool things.... like a cow right next to me pooping, and 2 lions doing it. Kylie has the picture of that or else it would be posted now. 2 lions doing it. That's so cool.

Remember how I wanted to rent motor bikes....

Well we rented normal bikes instead! We rode all over today trying to avoid getting hit by traffic.

We rode ourselves on over to Amazing Sandwich and had ourselves another delicious sandwich!

And Remember the prison massage we wanted to get...

We got it! Our prison inmate massage lady said she could not be in the picture, but she took it for us. It wasn't as scary as I thought, the things that woman did to my body however were terrifying and I can't believe I lived to write this. But she was actually very pleasant. However the whole time I kept trying to figure out what she did to end up where she is, drugs, theft, murder, probably not the last one.... It made me sad to think about, so I would switch my thoughts over to how good that sandwich was.

I finished the day with a delicious Mexican meal. I sure do miss chicken enchiladas and margaritas!

I am accomplishing what is on my list which means it will be time for me to leave this amazing country. We are thinking we are going to fly to Hong Kong on Monday, so we still have a lot of days to fill. Who knows what other adventures we are going to have!

I'll keep you posted!

kisses.
