“Hi Thailand. I just met you, and this is crazy, but [I love you] maybe.”
Only 24 hours in Thailand–Chiang Mai to be exact–and I’ve got a good feeling about this place. It could be that I’ve had roommates and ex’s who’ve spent time here, or maybe that I have Thai relatives and close family friends. Or maybe it’s the food that I’ve always had an affection for.
At any rate, I feel like I’m walking through a Pok Pok wonderland–only with more Thai people, and cute dogs, and buzzing motos, and red public transit buses.
I can’t read Thai worth a lick and I suppose I’ll have an even worse time sorting out how to speak it (all those intonations!) but I’ll do my best nonetheless.
There are tons of coconuts, tons of markets, loads of fresh foods, yoga studios, cute dogs, a mountain and exploring aplenty enough to keep me busy for a month or so.
Yes, good times ahead. Now back to my meal…
