While on the way to Chiang Mai, we woke up on the sleeper train and got situated in our seats for about another hour before we arrived. I had my feet propped up on Brandon's seat and was watching the sunrise over the northern countryside of Thailand. Brandon was reading through our Lonely Planet Thailand book (yes, reading!!) and looked up at me and said, "Did you read here about the massage place in Chiang Mai where they only hire blind employees because they believe their other senses are heightened and it makes them better at giving massages?"...There I was, sitting on a train, in a country I've always wanted to visit, with the sunrise outside of the window, and my husband was reading to me about something he knew I would like to learn about...It was just about the most romantic moment of my life.
On the Friday before we came back home, we were both kind of pooped from all the traveling and we were missing booboo pretty bad. So after our cooking class, we went to the park and layed around on our mat for almost two hours. I read a little and B did some people watching. We ate yummy chocolate sticks from the concession stand and teased each other about stupid stuff. It was such a simple afternoon, but one of my favorite memories in Thailand.
