Sunday Walking Street
Sticky rice and mango
We arrived a little bit late, but as we entered to the sound of Hillsongs hymns being sung in Thai, felt right at home. They put up the words in Thai and English, and swapped between the two, and it was nice to hear different cultures singing with the same sentiment of praise, but in a very different tongue.
He talked about living out the kingdom of God, and it was a really inspiring and affirming service, so we left feeling very positive
Hummus is my friend.
In the evening we wandered down to Sunday Walking Street, which is a much more civilised, family friendly version of the night market, with lots of lovely stalls and crafty bits.
It was here that I had my first encounter with sticky rice, mango and coconut milk. A. Maze.Ing.
We wandered along and stopped in a bar called Inter-Bar where there was a guy playing live music. All western songs, but the lyrics? Not entirely as I remember them. Especially the version of Sweet Home Alabama, which he in fact changed to Sweet Home Chiang Rai... catchy.
It was a lovely chilled day, and while my foot is still sore, it seems to be very much on the mend.
