Tasting the goodies in Chiang Mai
Our local guide looked at us as if she saw water burning.. “What? You don’t want to visit the three country point? You’d rather go to the local market with me??” It was obvious that she wondered if we had maybe enjoyed the local mushrooms too much but we eagerly nodded yes to her question. We didn’t want to go to the three countries spot only to get a stamp or two extra in our passports (tempting as it may sound) A Stamp without me actually having been to a country doesn’t mean so much to me.
We had been traveling the area with Laa for the last four days and we knew she wanted to be home on time that afternoon, due to the upcoming Loy Krathong celebrations. If she would have to go to the three country point and back she would be home late. So it didn’t take a lot of convincing to persuade her to take us to the market in her home town. And what fun it was!
