We crossed the border from Laos into Thailand by 9:00. We were on the bus to Chiang Mai by 10:30. By 5:00, we were checked into one of the nicest guest-houses (with a pretty pool too!) we've found on our trip so far. And then we set out to drop off some laundry, and by some, I really mean practically every article of clothing we have with us before dinner. And then once again, as we are still a bit sick, we crashed early. You have no idea how lovely a clean (sans deer head with moveable wooden ears) room, bathroom without holes in the wall in lieu of drains, and not having to wake up early feels. Ok, maybe you do, but just to reiterate, it feels great. Except, you know, the colds we're both battling.
