Lost in Chiang Rai

We got lost, did many u-turns, Mark refused to ask for directions, Jonas cried and Dylan demanded we go back to the pool. At the end we found the black temple (Baan si Dum) Рthe creation of local artist Thawan Duchanee. Animal skins, skulls and horns with amazing wood carving. Very dark and unique.

On a lighter note we then wandered around hungry till we found the Chivit Thamada Coffee House ran by a Swedish/Thai couple. Next to the river this white colonial house was beautiful. Everything was perfect- pastries, drinks and Dalarna horses while jazz played in the background. Could have been Sweden but there was sun and heat so maybe not.

Tomorrow we will catch a plane to visit some twins
