Over Chinese New Year, I spent a week in Thailand, catching up with my friend Kate.

We took a few days to relax in Chiang Mai, exploring the myriad temples, enjoying the local food (even doing a little cooking ourselves), visting the local cat and hipster cafes, and walking with elephants.

After that we returned to the hustle and bustle of life in Bangkok, taking in some tourist destinations, and catching up on some shopping. It was also great to get a chance to finally see the Jim Thompson House and pick up some new shirts.
