Odds & Ends

Some memorable stuff I wanted to put on my blog, but none merit their own post!

Thailand Videos

Well, I’m officially too lazy to actually make a nice GoPro video, so I just uploaded a few clips to youtube! The quality is awful and idk why. Oh well. There’s one of playing in mud with the elephants, one ziplining, and then a pretty waterfall – all in Chiang Mai ๐Ÿ™‚

The king had reigned for 70 years, so many Thai people had never known another king – and they all love their king very much. So the city was a bit somber while I was there, with bars and music and similar things closed, but the tourist stuff was still available. I was also a bit sick so I didn’t mindย the quiet & got some rest. The first night I did get to at least see the big bar area after going out with a Scottish guy I met.
