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.

But overall a bit expensive for what it is.

... in the water! We eventually made it down the river and swapped our raft boat for a bamboo raft and enjoyed a peaceful drift down the water.

It was then time to head back to Chiang Mai after an eventful two days! It was a brilliant trip and we had some fun people in our group which made the experience even better. ...
Students were able to catch an additional hour's sleep this morning. The weather today is absolutely beautiful. Another perfect day with sun, blue skies, slight breeze, no humidity and mid 70's. I am really not ready to face the winter weather back home. Oh, that is right, I still have 2 more weeks of summer here. I do not need to think about winter weather yet.
The students had Chinese doughnuts for breakfast. This is one of Bri's favorite foods. She calls them ...
... Ree liked the banana pancakes.
At Jan's recommendation we rented bicycles. Rode around for a bit, then stopped at a nice place for a tea to consider our options.
