sure signs the seasons they are a changing here in chiang mai
- frigid morning and evening temperatures. and when i say frigid i mean it. it was 66 this morning and i didn’t want to get out from under the warmth of the comforter. if you had told me 3 years ago that i’d be digging out hoodie sweatshirts and warm socks when the thermometer hit 69 i’d have called you crazy – or at least thought you were crazy.
- khom loy. you actually see them off and on through out the year, but they are in full force as the loy kratong celebration approaches. releasing these lanterns always feels sort of exotic. this past weekend i went to a party to celebrate a couple of friends’ 50th birthdays. as part of the festivities we released many lanterns. the brisk air and the lanterns made for a perfect cool season evening.
