Wats around Chiang Mai

I'm waiting to see if I get any good pictures from our Diwali party from Dave's boss -- so I'm going to skip those photos for now and dive into our Thailand trip.

Chiang Mai is the 2nd largest city in Thailand, but it still has a small town feel. No real skyscrapers. The wats were absolutely fascinating. Truly as numerous as Christian churches in the US. The bright orange-clad monks were everywhere, even in the markets.


The country is just as exotic as all the pictures you've seen. Carvings and statues of dragons abound. Their culture is very apparent in everyday life.





And now for a little game of "One of These Things is Not Like the Others."
