We wanted to eat traditional Northern Thai food so Lasana at our hotel recommended this place, Huen Phen. She said it was the best Northern Thai food restaurant in the area. The decor was so fun & the food was great, however I must say I like 'normal' Thai food better.
We went to Chiang Mai's Original Monkey School....
I have never seen as many in one place as I saw in Chiang Mai! Everywhere we went there were monks. Seeing them around made us very curious, so when we saw the 'Monk Chat' program we decided to stop in and have a chat.
The monk we chatted with was very shy and not very confident in his English, although he spoke much better than I would expect him to. He answered all of our questions and ask a few questions of us.
MIL, this picture is for you. On our last morning in Chiang Mai Hubby and I woke up early & went to Starbucks to buy a coffee mug for you. Here I am in front of the Starbucks with our tuk-tuk and driver.
Proud Army wife and mother to 4 wonderful children. I love to cook, travel, work out and scrapbook life’s adventures when I find the time. We just got orders & are heading back to the states in March 2010. I'm bummed that our time has been cut short, but proud of Hubby for the reason why.
