CHIANG MAI day 1

semi-overcast 32 °C
View Thailand on Camerowska's travel map.

a little update: yesterday night we went to the shows in Sukhothai Historical Park (haha, went biking - and no, there ARE NO street lamps there.... - was pitch black at times).
We asked some ppl what the occasion was and apparebtly it was an event organized by the Thai Government to promote tourism.

It was a sound/light show - together with some theatre. The performers (hundreds of teenagers) were all dressed in traditional Thai outfits. We quickly got sitting places within a reserved area - as one of the 3 non-locals that were there ;)

it started to rain - only a bit at first. It was beautiful - the temples/buddga images from the historical park were all lit up

The performance was beautiful but soon it started to rain A LOT (and there were thunderstorms) we hid under rthe tent of the actors - everyone welcomed the rare torists :)
Was so cool

now we r in Bangkok - have an interlanding before Chiang Mai :)
will post some pics later
