Well here I am in Pai Thailand! After arriving in Thailand I flew North to Chiang Mai for one night then headed to one of my favorite places Pai
. If you have ever been here you know what I mean. This place is so laid back that you just never want to leave. I Plan on staying for a few days and just chill and get over the jet lag. I was lucky to get into one of my favorite little guesthouses (only $9 a night!!) called Pai Chan. They have the most amazing gardens and a very sweet swimming pool. The bungalows aren't bad either. They were so nice they gave me the one I always love to stay in which is in the back with a small pond overlooking the lush rice paddies. Right now everything is so green it is amazingly beautiful. I woke up this morning refreshed and starving. Last night went to bed around 8 listening to all the jungle noises around me (and a loud local club) it was so peaceful, however this morning I woke up at 4 am and was starving however I had to wait for everyone else to come
alive before I could even get a cup of coffee. As soon as it was light I hit the road on my motor scooter and went for a brisk ride through the countryside. The locals were all moving about heading to jobs in the fields or sadly ;.( building more guesthouses. They probably weren't used to seeing a middle aged Farang women driving around so early so I recieved lots of stares and startled looks but pleasant smiles as well. I am sure that soon this sleepy little valley will be a huge tourist mecca if it isn't already. Well I am here now and I am going to enjoy it while I can.
So what to do today hum another scooter ride, lunch at some cute little restaurant, a swim in the pool, a massage? I think all of the above. Anyway just wanted to get the blog started even though I haven't done much yet so this will be a short entry. Wish all of you were here with me! Cheers
