Northern Thailand

Sorry, but I had to hit the “fast forward” button. Yesterday morning in Hanoi my leg was of course much more swollen than even anticipated – but with a lot of moaning and groaning and pain killers I made it to Bangkok and then to Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand.

After hopping into my rental car and ready to drive off the airport I realised that my carefully pirated 2013 street map of Thailand could not get unlocked by my satnav. Welcome to Thailand! Without a map! Well, not to overbore you, in the end I made it to the little “escape” near Bosang where I had spent an incredibly good time with Maria three years ago. This will be the base for the next two weeks. I have made only a few pics so far, because my leg hurts like hell.

But as today the weather was half rainy, half sunny I came back from an excursion into the Mae Sa valley at 3pm

and back home I used the pool for moving my leg around 🙂 To my great luck, Peter, the owner of the place, suffers from severe back pain (now, that sounds really awful, doesn’t it?!) and has Voltaren tablets that he shares with me. And I am sitting here now in the dark of night in front of our bungalow, after naked gymnastics in the pool for the leg, listening to the jungle noises, and my only pain are the occasional stings of those few nasty mosquitoes that don’t shy away even from Bulgarian alcoholics…and sipping “Sang Som” with coke. Sang Som (a so-called “Mekong-whiskey”) has overtaken the competition over the last ten years in terms of quality and is now much better than it’s arch-rival “Maekong” (just for your education 😉 )

Good night and sleep tight! I, myself, feel very relaxed here “at the border” of civilization.

Till “mañana“,

Frank
