Day 2 in chiang mai
Breakfast, Eyrique arrives. Move room
Rest for a while then walk……
Oven like heat of the afternoon. W meet analysis ex Muay Thai boxer who now lives in Australia. He attempts to persuade us to go trekking, buy a suit, go to a fight….
Taste of heaven veggie restauarnt: Poor service, Off off off, Bill is wrong….it gets a bad review from me on happy cows
More temples and chat in wat…..
Massageat a mother temple I’m so stiff. Buy some herbal remedies. Buy some conventional remedies, cos I’m getting a cold. In boots! Full of far ants with motorbike injuries and Thai women buying western cosmetics!
Over the street a aguy is training fighting beetles…i summise
Night market is snot a good plqce for food….in fact the food we have is poor and not at all spicy.again…..I’m disappointed
We check out the Gay bar, same old tired scene. Middle aged well to do faring with a boy each side. Quiet, low key, not very inspiring
Eyrique is disappointed.
W go to the outdoor Bus. Bar next to the iron bridge by the guest house. the coloured lighting morphs from red to green to blue to purple. this is a spot where young thais gather at night to take photos of each other. the bar plays Guns n roses, for goodness sake…. We’re charged 20 baht for a bowl of ice…..
I load myself up with pills to sleep off my cold…….
