    2 to Khao San Road It is the start of high season and the crowds have come early this year A torential downpour greeted our arrival on the strip and we quickly made our way to the nearest hotel which turned out to be Top Guesthouse a small noisy room with a barely adequate ac to dry out our things B450 for the night After changing into dry clothes we headed downstairs for Juliana s first taste of Thai Pad Thai A couple of Singa Beers and some tasty shrimp chips in the guesthouse restaurant watching the coming and goings of the great unwashed masses who were looking deciededly cleaner than the last time I saw them But then it is only the start of high season Ha ha After our tasty dinner which cost somewhere around US 10 we went for a walk down the This place is something you just have to see if your ever in Bkk One night in Bangkok Good Morning up early for a quick breakfast of fresh fruit and yoghurt Then a Tuk Tuk ride to the Grand Palace phew where did all the tourists come from Emerald Buddah and tourists got ta love it Then a train from Thon Buri northeast to Kanchanaburi Now this is what we are talking about The Thai country side in all its wet season finery green green green Arriving in Kanchanaburi some three and three quarters hours later We chose the Bamboo House a little out of town closer to the bidge to avoid the floating kareeokee bardges on the river A good choice That night walking to dinner along the main road we encountered our first elephant A young male about 13 years whos mahutes relieved us of B100 for some bananas to feed the gentle giant Tasty dinner number one at Apple Guesthouse and Noi the gracious host After dinner we went for damn good Thai massage number 1 oh so heavenly we followed it with an hours foot massage Falling asleep to the sounds of the river frogs crickets unmuffeled V6s and disco boats A peaceful nights rest at the Bamboo House got us up early to rent a Suzuki Jeep to head out and see some TIGERS For B850 B900 for petrol B25 l Driving north north west to Erwan National park and the Seven Level Waterfalls The Suzuki had seen better days but was one the vintage that you could take the front section of the roof off which is exactly what we did It was a lovely drive thru green country side lush with greens and gold The Erwan National Park has an ingeious system to stop visitors leaving trash inside the park They search your bag and mark your water bottle which is then registered and you have to leave a B10 deposit if you want to take it into the park So qusestion is there a B500 fine if you lose your bottle Then to the tiger temple Tiger Temple Thailand Now this is an experience we debated about taking Well really as this holiday was all about seeing Elephants and Tigers the decision was made If you read all the debate about this place one thing is without question a chance to get this close to these great creatures is moving I must say I feel for the Tigers as it would appear they were somewhat tranquil Wacked Out Tiger hum not in Thailand Regard this as a sign of the times However sad it may seem Just to keep the whole day interesting we then had a 60km drive back Kanchanaburi roof off raining and in the dark Ooo Tasty dinner number two at Apple Pad Thai and Garlic Prawns and the spring rolls are divine if brief Damn good Thai Massage number two If there were disco boats and crickets we didn t hear them after that Day three Tasty Breakfast number two at Apple Guesthouse and many thanks to Noi for the fine food and information Then a two and something hour mini bus ride to Bangkok Back to the Khao San to our friendly travel agent Charlie Connection Travel Tour Thailand Asia Airfares Tickets Air Bus Train Hotels Reservations To pick up our first class overnight train tickets to Chaing Mai If your in Thailand and have to spend the night getting to someplace and want the best way to travel The first class overnight service is great Arriving in Chaing Mai about 7 30am your somewhat rested and ready to go We bundeled out into early morning Chaing Mai Thailand other capital one that runs at a much more sedate pace that its big sister to the south We allowed the taxi driver to take us to a new place the Chaing Mai Thai House Hotel on Soi 2 It is a new place and the owners seem very much concerned with making money but as this is the start of high season The room was bright and airy and the pool was cool Chaing Mai is a bit of a mixed bag as far as restaurant choices choice there is plenty but its a bit hit or miss Pad Thai is the safest bet everyone does one the non asian alternative is pizzah and here is where you take your chances Pizzah in Thailand can be interesting or just plain bland The first day we spent in Chaing Mai visiting Wats temples around the town And we made arrangements to rent a car the next day from Pop Car Rental POP CAR RENT 51 Kotchasarn Rd ChiangMai 50100 tel 276014 We got a and drove it all over the place That first day we headed out of Chaing Mai north on the 107 toward Mai Rim Mae Sa Elephant Camp is a reason to get out of bed Elephants I dunno in Africa we are terrified of Elephants but here in Asia the elephants are different when you talk to them they listen and when they touch you it is as if they are saying hello I see you and I am not afraid of you your just a dumb tourist come to watch me do trick Ok Give me a banana and watch as I make it dissappear No really being with Elepants is truely amazing The strength and gentleness in their great big trunks it is as if the trunk is a whole being on it own and you forget that it is attached to the rest of this giant So at the Mae Sa Elephant Camp they have around 100 Elephants of various ages and by the looks of it the sole purpose of these elephants is to amuse the tourists They put on quite a show too Elephants playing football elephanst pushing big logs around elephants playing musical instruments not so well and Elephants painting Very Well wow We stayed at the elephant park for quite a while went to see the baby and ate a Pad Thai too The baby elephant is just born in September 28 a few days after Ju s birthday He was a fiesty little fella and very cute Next it was off to see some very over priced Monkeys Show which we deceided to give a miss as monkeys in cadges is just not so cool So we drove north up the 107 to the beautful Chiang Dao caves Spiders buddah and darkness situated in a scenic little temple village at the base of a massive carst one of the longest cave complexes in the world So by this time is is already getting late a we deceided that a long drive to Pai in the dark is not going to be good so we head back to Chaing Mai for the night Next morning we were up early and headed out for the long long drive to Mae Hong Song vis Doi Inthanon Thailands highest peak We made the peak after a 5 hour drive It was raining and cold at the top and the clouds obstructed the view but it was worth it From there we continued on toward Mae Hong Song along some very very winding mountain roads We stopped along the way to admire the view the greenery rice paddies bamboo plantations and hillsides covered in corn and flowers Very pretty indeed Mae Hong Song is a beautiful little town with a temple by a small lake and another two on hills oposite each other view views of both sides of the lake and town Somehow our travel temple luck was holding as the next evening was a famous national holiday Chulalongkorn Day where all Thai people light candles and send them off in little boats or float them up in the air on ballons But the night of our arrival at 3am across the lake at the temple the guy on the loud speaker and the bad music and all blarring as loud as all get up The walls of our guesthouse were vibrating from the racket Chulalongkorn Day well at least it wasn t taxi horns Chulalongkorn Day please have a look at the pictures it was something else especially the 4 5 competeing sound systems opera prayers chinese opera more prayers and such It was a lovely dream of a happy day floating dreams up into the sky That night we slept like babies our stars shininy bright above us Chulalongkorn Day The next day we got up early and drove back to Chaing Mai down the 108 It took a good six hours and by the time we got to Chaing Mai we were ready for a swim in the pool at Top North Guesthouse Pad Thai and a shopping Ju had been waiting for this the whole trip and as was our luck we walked out to go to the night market only to find that it was SUNDAY and the SUNDAY market was open On a street very close to our hotel running the whole length of the street 2 3km was one big huge market with thousands and thousands of people out enjoying the cool evening and a chance for a bargain Well Juliana was in heaven a good chance to get all those gifts for everyone back in Brasil So we shopped for a couple of hours Bargaining being half the fun Once we were sufficently laden with purchases we headed back to the hotel and another massage All the while more people sending hot air ballons toward the heavens it would appear that Chulalongkorn Day is actually Chulalongkorn WEEK Waking up early we headed out for a tasty breakfast of banana pancakes fruit and more shopping for Ju I found a couple of used Paulo Coelho books for the journey home this was it day nine of our visit to the land of temples tigers and elephants Once again thanks to the ever friendly Thai People Kup Kun Cap Departing Chaing Mai on Train 51 5 45 pm arriving Don Mun Airport 5 30am a three hour wait for our flight to HKG and the end of 10 days in the Kingdom of Thailand 26 Feb 06 Brasil Gaucho Country Rio Grande Do Sul Literally the big river of the south Brasil s southernmost state and the home of some of the nicest people I have ever met and wow do they ever know how to BBQ Enjoy the photos and remember to get your cholesterol checked ha ha More later Later Well as you can see by the photos Brasil is beautiful really beautiful Wide open spaces green fields and endless friendliness Ya That has got to be it the people Everywhere I went I was made to feel warm and welcome So let me tell you a few things about Brasil Well the national past time must be football everywhere you go you see kids kicking a ball around The six o clock news is a mix of stories about robberies and football The kids at the pool in Ju s condo looked at me like I was a complete freak when I declined their invitation to play with them Me and my two left feet I don t think so Next up is BBQ or as the Brasillians call is Churrasco pronounced shoo RAS koo Now have a look at the pictures of this These people take this very seriously only the men can prepare the fire and the meat the women make the salad and keep the men refreshed with Cerveza Bem Gelada BBQ in Brasil is a little different they get great big hunks of fresh meat never frozen stick it on a metal skewerabout 2m long followed by another hunk of meat and so on When the skewer is full the meat goes into the specially built CHURRASCARIA all brazilian houses have built in BBQ While all this is going on the first thing that gets cooked is Churrasco de coracão de galinha otherwise know as chicken hearts also cooked on a skewer then passed around on a platter with manioc flour or farofa These little suckers are a taste to be acquired not bad only the texture is what gets me a bit chewy They also do little sausages called sausachioun Linguiça with farinha de mandioca as appetisers After an hour or so of this the meat is ready The person serving will come around to each person with the skewer and you put your fork on the bit you want and he will then slice it off for you So if you like the endy bits or prefer the middle bits you always get what you want Now did I mention the Brasillians passion for cold beer Now we are not talking regular cold this is what is know in Brasil as Cerveza Bem Gelada meaning GOOD COLD BEER When you order a beer in Brasil they bring you the bottle and a plastic insulated sleeve with a lid that fits of the bottle to keep the beer COLD Did I say cold Yes the kind of cold that when it hits the back of your throat on a hot day in pure heaven And the beer is pretty good too Bramma Extra being the one I like nice strong lager BEM GELADA Brasillian drivers pass you on the inside motorcycles passing thru the middle of the lanes trucks that just cut you off with no warning and tail gaiters Mind you I was sticking exactly to the speed limit as I have no license The roads are generally in good condition but there are toll booths every 100 km or so that hit you up for R5 US 2 5 Very annoying Did I mention football Good things to eat in Brasil well as mentioned already BBQ The next most popular food must be Pastils These are little pastry pockets stuffed with a rainbow of fillings everything from Calazone to Strawberry Jam deep fried and delicious available at every corner store and Rodarvio Posto petrol station they range in quality and taste from delicious to downright oily Good things to drink the national soda drink is not Coke at all but Granada 2l bottles with lunch Ah yes and in Brasil the main meal of the day is taken at lunch with the evening meal often being lighter In the south as most of the people are of a European decent especially Italian and German the food is very heavy Lasagne Pastas Salamis Stroganoff and Strudels All delicious if a little on the bland side The Southern Brazillian palate is noticeably mild Its not all heavy though Brazil has a passion for fresh fruit and vegetables and the variety is staggering farmers park their trucks wagons and van on the side of the road and the prices are very reasonable 3 juicy pineapples cost us R5 US 2 50 not cheep but not expensive by any means and very juicy and sweet even if the redneck farmer who sold em to us was one of the very few unpleasant Brasillians we encountered How about that Ya so in the six weeks I was in Brasil aside one or two crazy drivers who must have been annoyed at my grandpa driving I can say that the asshole fruit farmer was the only jerk I met The rest of the population are like a dream they stop to talk to you and will tell you half their life history in one breath Brasil runs on Brasil time not saying that it runs late just that people stop to talk to each other and are genuinely concerned after the health of your pet chickens Yes I have got to say O Brasillerios é pesos muintos agradável Part of the socialising ritual involves carrying around a hot water thermos and a chimarråo gourd and sucking thing Erva Mate is the green tea that is said to elicit all manner of health benefits It originates from the local indigenous peoples and is enjoyed religiously by millions everyday across Gaucho country Gauchos carry their Chimarräo with them where ever they go the shopping mall the beach to the office movies and the favourite has got to be sitting in garden chairs in front of the house getting the passing neighbours passing the chimarråo to the person on the right One of the rules of drinking Chimarråo is that it is good to make the gurgling sound sucking on the straw thing called a bomba which are made out of silver and gold Gauchos are south american cow boys and their culture is one of horses cattle wine and music did we mention football Churrasco e Cerveza Bem Gelada The music is very European flavoured harmonicas accordions drums and tambourines and lively songs about love harvest and cows I m learning Portuguese listening to these songs on my ipod ha ha Eu t Amore Meu Amore

    at Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry and almost didn t happen Apparently in Hong Kong you cannot be late for you wedding time slot as the Registry runs on a very tight schedule and if you are more than 10 minutes late you miss out As it was the happy couple were rushed thru the whole process with barly time to catch their breath Another thing make sure your wittnesses bring their passport or ID card as they will be needed as it turns out I the photographer ended up being one of the wittnesses and when the ceremony was starting the Magristrate said for me to sit at the table someone had to sit in for me and then I had to sign the marriage license All in all it was a fun light ceremony and the rush job did nothing to diminish the couples enjoyment of the event They were one of these couples so clearly in love that nothing would have spoiled the day And as luck would have it once the ceremony was over and everyone went outside the rain had all but stopped So then on to pictures in the park by the waterfall After
