First Week

We have been in Chiang Mai for a week now. Dan has been doing a fair bit of shopping when he is out on his scooter -- some more hangers, new shoelaces, bottle opener, other miscellaneous items that will come in handy. I am still taking it quite easy, enjoying frequent massages. I walk out to a market at least once a day.

Flowering shrubs along the way:

Scenes at the Chiang Mai Gate market, lots of fried things!

We've been eating quite a lot of takeout in the evenings. (Yes, I'll get more pictures of that food.) Last night we went back to the Doo Dee, one of our favorite restaurants. Only one of the two servers we've gotten to know was there and she told us they had a new owner and new menu. The food was very good, but similar to so many other restaurants around. There was only one other customer during the 45 minutes or so that we were there. It used to be hopping in the evenings. The old Doo Dee had some unusual and different dishes that we enjoyed. Not sure we'll go back...

Dan's Massaman curry was delicious and presented beautifully.

My Pad See Ew also was presented well and included a small salad. It was large and I brought some home for lunch today.

At the end of the meal they brought us this fruit plate. It was lovely, but the watermelon wasn't the best.
