Relaxing Saturday

While we were in the Bangkok Airways Lounge in Chiang Mai, I saw the advertisement to the left. It was for an exhibit being held at Thailand Creative & Design Center Gallery about the street food culture here. I knew we had to go!

So after sleeping in a bit, chatting with my brother on the phone, we got cleaned up and got lunch down the street from one of the vendors down the street. We then walked for a bit, hit up an internet cafe to use their printer, then headed to the Sukhumvit area to go see the exhibit. The gallery was housed in one of the large shopping complexes so after doing some window shopping we headed to the top floor, where there also happened to be a movie theater! Score! We bought ourselves tickets for Angels & Demons and then headed into the exhibit until the movie showing.

The exhibit was great, well thought out and very informative. And the movie was great too, they really did a good job translating the book to the screen. Nice to have that little since of home being far away. We did some shopping at the gallery's store (awesome awesome stuff!) Then it was off to the Suan Lum Night Bazaar since we got rained out last time and there was so much we didn't get to see.

The night bazaar was awesome, much more relaxed and clean than any of the other markets here. And while the vendors do try to sell, you don't feel like you are getting hollered out walking through the aisles. We got some great deals too, love it!

Then it was time for us to head home (as it was already like 10:30!) We grabbed dinner from our favorite Khao Kha Moo stall then made our way back to the condo. It was a great day!
