We took a one day beginner Thai cooking class and we are definitely ready to go PRO! Even though we had helpers measuring, preparing and cleaning up all of our stuff we feel confident that we have the tools (we did buy one of their knives) to become famous too! Our chef was none other than Sampon...the Famous Thai Chef! We had a blast that day cooking Panang Curry, Northern curries, Fish with chilis and basil and of course sweet sticky rice! We got to eat everything we made and two days later Ted and I are still alive!!
One of the best parts of the Cooking class was that it was taught in Air conditioning. Now, I have never been a fan of air conditioning in Saskatoon but I have quickly grown to love, seek and crave it in South East Asia. It is tooooo hot here! There is no reprieve! We even started to plan the last leg of our trip based around weather forecasts! If you don't have air con or a beach it really limits what you feel like doing all day! Thankfully in Chiang Mai we found an awesome pool (i wish i had goggles) not too far away. We are enjoying hanging out in this lovely little city. Biking all over the place to have mango soothies and picnics. We even found a shop with real cheese - making our sandwiches awesome!
We are heading north in a few days to see Gibbon monkeys! Ted and I will get to live in a tree house and move around by zip cord! After that we are counting down the trip as we will make it home by the end of May.
