I took a long break and have not finished blogging my trip. This is the continuation...

We stayed overnight at Pastor Tina's lovely home in Chiang Mai. We arrived late last night. The morning was cold... but had to do laundry. We have accumulated so much of dirty clothes... It has been difficult to do washing, being on the move all the time.

There will be a church meeting in her home tonight, Christmas gift exchange and yummy dinner. So, the rest of them went to Big C to purchase a gift THB100 or above for gift exchange. I was really tired and still feeling the effects of flu, decided to take a flu tablet and that knocked me off till about 6pm. But I needed it because the last few days has been tiring and not getting the rest my body needed.

Mary praying for the food... plus the yummy turkey!

Ethaniel totally loving the turkey... Cleaning up the bones... Smart boy, that is one of the best part of the turkey! So funny to see him eat like this!

Joel really loved the neighbor's dog... So beautiful

We ended the night with a trip to the Warorot Market which is next to the Flower Market. We were going to Doi Inthanon tomorrow, which is the highest peak in Thailand, so we need something warmer. We needed gloves, hat, socks, sweaters and the whole works! There was a great second hand market which we bought some sweaters from as low as THB50 per pc.

Now, let's get some sleep.
