What a great trip to Chiang Rai with Jerry and Art. We had a HOT time, both figuratively and physically. Lets start with the trip there: First as we left Chiang Mai, they were working on the freeway over-pass,
This is a private contractor’s workers finishing a typical over-pass – I thought it looked like Thailand’s CalTrans – but here everyone is working
This is just for California residents– LoL.
It costs far less for manual labour than for heavy equipment – so most projects are labour intensive.
I also spotted this soldier apparently going home – in the heat today it’s far more enjoyable using a Doi Saket Yellow-Cab than braving the hot wind alone.
It was very hot today – near 40C (that’s about 104F) and the wind can be brutal. We spotted him on the way to Chiang Rai – looked like the thing to do.
When we got to Chiang Rai, we stopped at the “Chiang Rai Beach” actually a public park on the Maekok River before it flows into the MaeKhong River. In the next post I will show more pictures of the park area. I am going to split this into several posts to keep each post shorter.
In the evening, Jerry and I went to “Little Patpong” – LoBo Bar (Go-Go boys featured) and after the show we went to the Regency Bar – a local gay bar, while Tasanai and Art went to the “Par Club” – largest Disco in Northern Thailand.
All of us had a great time – Tas & Art said the Disco was more of an older crowd, but the music was good, not overly loud – they didn’t get to “The Sperm” (now doesn’t that bring up some images LoL )a smaller Disco down the street that caters to a much younger crowd – you can tell by the number of motorcycles in front and the ground shaking from the music inside – ha-ha
Our visit to the clubs was very exciting, great shows, great eye candy, meet some special boys (hopefully we can get some to model for Tasanai ).
We are now planning to make a special trip to Chiang Rai and feature a special post on the activities available, bars, clubs, other night life and events that Chiang Rai has to offer – we are definitely going back. Don’t miss this one.
