Q: Why did the farang (foreigner, Thai equivalent of gringo) cross the road?
A: The farang never made it across, there was way too much traffic…
I spent my last day in Thailand cruising around Chiang Mai–and a good amount of time just waiting for the tiniest break in traffic, to cross the road.
Chiang Mai has a moat around it, and my guest house is just on the other side of the moat, which is lined with roads on either side.
I spent the day catching up on a bit of writing, had one last Thai meal (cost me about $2 for lunch and a mango shake) and then a Thai foot massage (cost about $3, with tip).
Tonight I fly to Cairo, where I will spend the next two days being hosted by the Evangelical Seminary in Cairo.
This reminds me of our dinner with my dad– “no matter what Erin, the answer is always to GET TO THE OTHER SIDE!”
Ha. Can’t believe you’re halfway there. Envious of all the 3 dollar bodywork! 🙂
You and your Uggs are much missed in CA
