This first week in Thailand has been amazing! I’m experiencing things I never thought I would be able to say I did. I’ve had the opportunity to ride an elephant, attend a Thai cooking school, visit a mental hospital, and shop around at the markets. So far, I think my favorite part was visiting a Buddhist temple. There we had the chance to sit down with a monk and ask any questions we had. We also got to see a temple that was over 600 years old! This first week in Chiang Mai has been amazing and I’m excited to see what Chiang Rai and Bangkok have to offer.
