Another gourmet meal on the road

Getting into my duds for a Thai massage. The largest sandals they had were about half the size of my feet. The massage itself may have done more harm than good, but I survived!
Karen says I'm messy. I don't know WHAT the heck she's talking about.

We rode bikes out to Chiang Mai's stadium. The smoky haze is from people burning their fields, garbage, etc. Not conducive to bicycling. >>cough, cough<<
February 25, 2012
Halfway around the world, I found it: an exact duplicate (in terms of taste) of the famous Wisconsin State Fair creme puff, right down to the powdered sugar on top. It was as messy... and delicious... as the ones back home.

Tours available at our hotel. No, #5 is not a reference to my wife- the local Karen people put rings on girls' necks to stretch them. We generally avoid treating humans as tourist attractions and didn't opt for that excursion.

These Junior Guides approached me at a wat in Chiang Mai, eager to practice their English by showing me the historic well. While their English wasn't so good, their enthusiasm was high.

Yummy naughty fried dinner in Chiang Mai

Happy Fat Tuesday! These are as close as we could get to paczkis, courtesy of Dunkin Donuts at the Bangkok airport.

Typical Thai wiring.
February 19, 2012
As in: rice made by the Karen people of Myanmar and Thailand.

I went to see "Hugo" and found Kermit. Did they have these Muppetational promos at home? (If so, I'm jealous.)
Homesick? Pick up a big bottle of the United States of America.

Ken shows off his new shirt, while simultaneously standing in and next to Thailand's tallest building. (Thanks for the new threads, Karen.)
Who says McDonald's isn't culturally sensitive? Ronald says "thank you" in the traditional Thai pose... and serves up the same old greasy food. Not that we would know- we're avoiding the Golden Arches.

In Bangkok, Karen gets her second international chiropractic adjustment. Her first was four months ago in New Zealand.
February 15, 2012
On the Bangkok subway.
February 14, 2012
I think all public transportation should look like a shuttle bus at Woodstock
February 13, 2012
Well, somebody's gotta wash this elephant

Do as we say, not as we do
February 10, 2012
Do you change the oil and rotate them too?
February 9, 2012
It's our first full day in Thailand and we love Thai food, so for dinner we have... Japanese?!
February 8, 2012
Mommy, my snack food is staring at me
February 7, 2012
The crocodile farm next to our hotel. Their meat is destined to be served up at restaurants down the block. Their skins are headed for Thailand to be made into purses.

Monks at the North Gate of Angkor Thom

In Cambodia, you can get incredible prices on clothes from top names. Just don't look too closely at the names.
February 4, 2012
Sunrise at Angkor Wat
February 3, 2012
Karen found the last person on earth who hadn't experienced the wonder of the iPad: a Cambodian on staff at our hotel. She cured him of this affliction. Steve Jobs can now rest in peace.
February 2, 2012
Ken finally gets the burger he's been craving, while Jeff goes right for the fries (can you blame him?).
February 1, 2012
Traditional Cambodian shadow puppets, performed by local children
