in thailand, we spent our first day in bangkok. i enjoyed the water taxi, and exploring the royal palace.
the next evening, we caught the night train up north to chiang mai. it's a nice smaller city, and we took several tourist-y expeditions while we were there.
seeing (and riding) elephants:
and zip-lining in the rain forest!
chiang mai itself was also really nice.
next post: we head east to the laos border.
