Day three in Chiang Mai was an "orientation" day. We realised we haven't been planning very far ahead and weren't able to get on the elephant tour we wanted, so decided to knuckle down and do some planning homework. But you can't do nothing!

Personal Reflection and June 11th Twenty two days ago I left Minneapolis. I came here to accomplish many things, experience another culture, and to get out on my own.

Nothing much wrong with the place; although could do with more light. Decent rooms and ok bathrooms and had a balcony looking over the river and a pool.
