We waited for the weather to clear up before committing to a trekking tour. J and I signed up for a 2 day, 1 night trek in Northern Chiang Mai. We took it easy our third day in Chiang Mai. We got a late start since we stayed up watching Mr. and Mrs Smith on HBO the night before. After eating brunch at Art's Cafe (?) we went looking for a spa to get massages. We went to a place called "Let's Relax" - they are all over. I got a foot massage and fell asleep during it. 😊

J and I walked around the city and browsed some temples. They all start to look the same after awhile... quite beautiful and ornate though.

We worked up our dinner appetite and ate at Rantana's (?) - not too spectacular for the price. We had the usual - papaya salad, curry, basil chicken...

I enjoyed our stay at the guesthouse - Chiang Mai Thai Guesthouse. Located convenient to the wall gate, night market, and the room are clean and the decor is cute. The staff there is a little bit pushy about selling trips and tours, but to be expected....

See how there are a lot of people wearing yellow polos? Thais wear yellow on Monday to honor the King (and blue on Friday to honor the Queen)!
