Ava, Jack & Guy, Ling, Oli's hand!
Ava and I arrived safely in Chiang Mai yesterday and were met by my old friends, Oli and Ling (who used to work at my school). It's great to see Oli [the hand in the bottom right of the photo!] who I haven't seen for a couple of years, and his wife Ling [right in photo] who I last saw in Kunming over a year ago. They drove us to Lampang, where they live and work, and are kindly letting us kip down in their spare room while we're here. We've had some delicious meals with some of their friends too - the food has been a real highlight so far.
Daeng, me, Pim, Ava
Another reason for heading to Lampang was to finally meet up with Daeng and Pim. They both work in the International School that "recruited" Oli and Ling. Daeng and I have been exchanging 2-3 e-mails a week for well over a year now and I already felt I knew her quite well despite only meeting here face-to-face today. She and Pim showed us around their pretty little school and we'll meet for a meal in a few day's time. The rain's holding off so far...
