We've been in Chiang Mai, Thailand for about a week now, and we love it! This means more when you consider that durian is relatively scarce here (though for us it's not too too hard to find because Lindsay has a keen nose and a biological durian compass). Regardless, it's a charming city.
Nestled in the mountains of Northern Thailand, Chiang Mai is currently enjoying its hot, dry season. This is excellent for us because we love the heat, but it is also when the rice farmers burn their fields. So when we arrived the sky was a smoky grey and the sun a gorgeous red disk.
