Good morning, everyone!  Just a brief note to let everyone know that I arrived safely in Thailand last night.  It was a great flight from JFK (I looked for Santa Claus when I crossed over the North Pole, but the lights were out at his place, so I can only assume he's taking a little time off given the end of season rush).  Thai Airways was great- open bar, amazing airline food (that's right!), and unlimited movies from an in-seat entertainment console!  It made the 17-hour flight seem....well...like 17 hours, but much more pleasant than expected.  After a quick connection to Chiang Mai and a red truck taxi ride, I was at my guesthouse a little after 9:30 pm, Thailand time.

I'll be here for a few days before I check into Wat Phra That Doi Suthep to begin my meditation studies.  Today, I'll be exploring the city by foot and doing a little shopping.  Here are a couple of pictures from my guesthouse!

Happy New Year to everyone!
