Just been wandering around Mae Sot today. Went to breakfast at the muslim breakfast place again. Mmmmmm... Then walked around the market looking for some flip flops that would fit me. Got lots of smiles when I pointed to my feet and said "Yai", Thai for big. Eventually, I found a shop that had a pair of flip flops that were nearly big enough for me and bought them. That was my feat for the day (bad pun intended).
Visited a few of the Wats (Buddish Temples) in Mae Sot. Here's a couple photos. They are quite magnificent.
Here are a couple pictures taken by a Taiwanese friend who was living in Mae Sot and shared some photos of town with me.
My friend Patch and I will be heading up north to install a micro-hydro electric project. Though, it sounds like there may not be much work for me to do there. There are going to be many many people there to work, but, even if I don't get to work, it will be an interesting trip and I will learn a lot about renewable energy.
I'll be returning to Bangkok on Feb. 10th and hope to be able to post some photos then. Will be playing in an ultimate frizbee tournament there, which will be really fun.
