In With the New

November 6, 2010

The second day, I ventured beyond the Old City into the main part of Chiang Mai.  Chiang Mai was a walled city and the wall still exists.  While it doesn’t have as much charm as the Old City, there are many more temples amidst the shopping and restaurants.

    oh my god, these temples are beautiful! and how funny to see them juxtaposed with modern life.

    Yes, it is one of the fascinating things about Chiang Mai. And there are so many of them, you start to take them for granted. But then you see so many monks walking around the city and you realize how sacred it is. It's a wonderful thing.
