Keeping Things In Perspective.

Recommended Posts

Chiang Rai was my last port of call as in vacation while I lived in Thailand, I spend at least one night in every province of Thailand, and I can say I ll like to go back to Thailand and live in Chiang rai when I get much older.

To the big old fella, (Dutch I think) That owns the restuarant opposite the liquor shop, I hope you still going very strong.

I love Chiang rai like I loved samui late nineties.

Yes Chiang Rai is a beautiful province but many things change as the years go bye . Chiang Rai City is no longer the sleepy village it used to be , now it is growing a very fast pace with tons of construction , more and more people coming to live here , lots of traffic , yet still not as bad as some of the other major cities but it wont be long before congestion clogs up the place. I regard here as the jewel of Thailand that is no longer secret but I hope all that come here can live quietly and peacefully as most of us do and live out out days in our little bit of heaven - ( in the unreligious sence of staying somewhere tranquil and serene and has no regard to upsetting any religious believers of other faiths )tongue.png

As the OP I would like to reiterate my intent to keep things in perspective. Chiang Rai is a wonderful place to live. smile.png

“No snow or blizzards, no tornados, no major earthquakes, no volcanos, no dust storms, no tsunamis, no mega-floods like Bangkok, no wars, no famine, no gang violence, and the list goes on. Yes, we have to deal with a little smoke most years but as far as I am concerned, it could be a whole lot worse.”

It just seems to me any problems we have pale into insignificance when compared to situations elsewhere.smile.png

I know that I personally have very little to do with the way Chiang Rai is but this thread still makes me feel proud to be from Chiang Rai! biggrin.pngthumbsup.gif

While Chiang Rai is an excellent place to be, I suppose one could also see it as an excellent place to be from.thumbsup.gifbiggrin.png

There you go Pomchop, for some reason I thought you were English.... cool.pnglaugh.png

Without getting too deeply into the quaint rituals of our American cousins the obsession with educational institution sports in the US has always bemused me.

In my high school/college football days in Australia... real football... (AFL)... we rarely saw a spectator. smile.png

yes its real football , not padding like girls...

We suffered some broken branches and a few leaks with the rain coming in horizontally but it could have been much worse. I managed to save four puppies when their little earthen den flooded. Things are pretty much cleaned up now so, no harm no foul.

To further keep things in perspective the plants will grow new branches, crops have received much needed water and the sky has been cleansed once again. The trails will no longer be so dusty. Things are looking up.smile.png

I was going to make an early start to MaeSai and end up at Chiang Khong for lunch but I think I will leave it for another day.

Good move staying home today. Besides we are of an age where it is okay to change our minds from time to time. Great day to stay in, stay dry and annoy people on the internet.thumbsup.gif

Just glad I haven't yet got to the stage where I cannot remember what it was I changed my mind from.
