One of the primary reasons I chose to live in Chiang Mai is that I wanted to experience the festivals this city is so famous for holding throughout the year. With winter upon us, the festivals have begun! Chiang Mai is the center of the old Lanna Kingdom and continues to celebrate many of the …
Gold is everywhere at Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, even among the Buddhas. Getting to the Wat (temple) is not easy since it is perched high in the hill above Chiang Mai, but once you arrive you are greeted with dozens of golden Buddhas.
I took this photo from the top of the peak in Hong Kong. I was lucky to have a fairly nice day with little smog or haze (even though it looks pretty hazing, this is a good day from what I was told).
The Djama El Fna fills with every food vendor you could imagine, but this one really caught my eye. I’ve had some odd foods in my travels, but I’ve never eaten goat brains. Despite the vendor trying, I still haven’t had them. Maybe next time.
