Today started with a lot of chores. Washing, followed by our routine trip to Breakfast World where Tam was ecstatic to be able to have coco pops (!), our last trip to Boots before Laos (where we suspect we will not be able to find basic necessities!), a trip to the pharmacy to stock up on drugs, a trip to the British pub for one last cider and some Western cuisine, an hour at the White Orchid for a manipedi for me and a foot massage for Tam and then a quick trip to a lovely temple on our way home (just so we can say we did SOME sightseeing in Chiang Mai and didn't spend most of our time here getting pampered and eating breakfast!) where we saw some monks meditating .


After a quick refresh at the hostel we headed out again to the Night Bazaar to meet Simran and Alex. Simran and Tam climbed Mount Kilimanjaro together a number of years ago, and despite living in close proximity (we're talking maybe half an hour away from each other), haven't seen each other in two years. Naturally, on learning that their paths would cross for one night in Chiang Mai we had to meet up! And a lovely evening it was too! Cheap market food, some Thai music and dancing, some very impressive breakdancing and a spot of shopping, all in very good company!

Now we're home to pack before catching our bus to the Laos border tomorrow!!
