Mom, Jan, and Sandra have arrived in Asia! We started our journey with a brief jaunt in Singapore before having to re-evaluate our plans. Our first stop was Bangkok but due to record rainfall, our plans were foiled. After looking at our options, we decided to go to Chiang Mai a day early.
Our pre-arranged driver wasn't available for our early arrival so we opted to hire our airport taxi driver, Was (yes, that's his name). It seems like many people here double as tour guides. We stopped at various temples around Chiang Mai, the first of which was Wat Chedi Luang. Opulent patterns and serene fixtures were all around.
