This is it. By this time tomorrow we will be flying home. There were no special plans today other than to fly back to Bangkok and have a farewell banquet tonight. But we had a mid day flight. Why waste a perfectly good morning? We went onto the old, walled city of Chiang Mai. First a humdinger of a food market, then some of the best shopping of our trip, then all of a sudden a parade arrived to celebrate Chinese New Year! It was a blinding sea of red and gold for the most part. Bands played, giant dragons paraded into each shop to bring good fortune for the year ahead. Everything wildly colorful and joyful, a great way to leave Asia with a bang!
