day fifty-eight: november 26, 2015: doi suthep + waterfall + thai thanksgiving
We headed up to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep with Kristina, hoping for a nice view over Chiang Mai because it was hazy when we were there the last time. We caught a songthaew, red pick up truck taxi, for 50 baht a person to the temple, just outside the North Gate.
Because its one of the most famous temples in the area, there were a ton of people and it quickly became a little overwhelming.
On the way out from the temple, we had to grab a quick snack of grilled pork and sweet corn.
We made our way down the hill and made a stop at the Huay Kaew Waterfall. It's just a short walk from the main road and nice place to dip your feet into the water to cool off.
Over the past three days we've passed all kinds of great street art throughout the old city. Below are just a fraction of what's scattered around the city.
Almost back to the hotel, we felt the craving for some fruit so we stopped by Fruiturday down the street from our hotel for a nice fruit smoothie and some air conditioning.
Along with Carina, Kristina, Aida and her friends from back home, we thought it would be nice to have Thanksgiving dinner together at Dash. Even though they offered a traditional American Thanksgiving, we all had Thai food because it's so freakin' good! :) I'm so glad we were able to share this holiday surrounded by friends, new and old, and of course, delicious food. We did get to enjoy a brownie, apple pie rolls, cheesecake andd pavlova for dessert!
