The other day we spent some time wandering around the fanciest mall in the city and came across this awesome Treasure-Island themed display, made entirely out of balloons. Kids were super excited about this!
Outside the mall there were a bunch of displays about recycling, including a giant pyramid made out of Coke cans, and this tree made out of CDs:
This is my favorite soup ever. I could eat it every day, and that is actually my plan. I haven’t had it out of a bag yet, but there’s time! It’s rice noodles in a rich, meaty broth, with thin pieces of pork and pork balls. I’m not sure what the green vegetable is, but I’m guessing it’s something like choy sum.
And now for our change of plans: We have decided to take a stab at living in Chiang Mai! It’s our favorite city in Thailand (that we’ve seen so far), and Mike talked to the guy in charge of the TEFL course at Chiang Mai University. With my American credential and the fact that I’m female (apparently there’s a shortage of female teachers here), he said it should be pretty easy for me to find a job while Mike takes the course. We are really excited about this! We’re taking the train up early next week to scope out a place to live.
