I’ve been writing from Raming Tea House for the last few days. Found this pooch smiling in a basket out the front with a look that I could identify with: “I’m just happy to be here”.

It’s a smoky day in Chiang Mai today (heck, it’s smoky every day this time of year). Slash and burn agricultural practices in the hill tribes cast the heavy haze over the whole region for more than a month. Still…it’s better than the air in Delhi!
A longtail in Chiang Mai. We were lucky this boat didn’t sink with all of us loaded up in it!
Spent the day an hour north of Chiang Mai on a giant houseboat, writing and swimming and eating and swimming…life is good!
Working in the one space can bring on cabin fever. I had to get out, so I went to write in the Raming Tea House. Best mango frappes!

I’m moving house today. A 30kg bag on a bike too small.

The Chiang Mai Night Bazaar is open every night of the year… (เชียงใหม่ ไนท์ บาร์ซ่า)
I’m back in Chiang Mai. I’ll be spending the next few weeks in this cute little library to write. Love the elevated traditional Thai architecture, and the air-con!
Get your Singha for 70B (~$2.20) from a longtail merchant and kick back in a tropical paradise!
