It was wonderful to meet up with Anjali and Domingos on Friday evening when they returned from their tour to the north. We ate at the Doo Dee, our old favorite, which is quite near the place they are staying. Anjali and I both had the pad thai, which is always good there.
None of us stayed up for New Year's. However, I certainly did hear the midnight fireworks, which I could see from our bedroom. Jet lag isn't too bad this time, but an early night was in order.
Saturday morning we met up for breakfast, then Dan had a massage. The rest of us walked over to IDI, where I usually get my massages. Unfortunately, they were closed for the holiday weekend. In the late afternoon we headed out for the Saturday evening walking market which is nearby. There are many wonderful handicrafts for sale as well as street food.
