Frank Roettgen commented on a photo in Phrae - Uttaradit

Why am I not surprised hearing that, Andrea! Have you and Bruce made any plans on your time Thailand yet? You may have answered that question in your journal but - mea culpa! - I have been busy rolling over the ubiquitous undulations of Northern Thailand.... Tomorrow I want to have a look at it while roaming through the Historic Park of Sukhothai though! Would love to meet before I leave towards New Zealand on Dec 29

Thank you, Bill. Very interesting! I did some cycling along the German-Polish border in August and there were signs everywhere warning of the oak processionary caterpillars.... I am glad I didn´t touch the little creature!

And the adult moths range from spectacular to nondescript.

Nice picture!

Don't get the hairs on you... you might get a rash.

That is a tussock moth caterpillar of some kind, but I could not find a good image match .

I usually listen to your advice, Chris, but forget about the coffee-ginger one....

Indeed, Chris. The room, the staircases and the lobby are just wonderful. Doesn´t come out on my other photos unfortunately

NIce memories for me Frank. Chiang Muan is one of those places that I'd like to go back again, mainly because there's no attractions there. Simple cycling, huge teak houses, ficefields, farmland. We had dinner in the front of someone's house. A small stall with 2 tables. Brightest place in town was the new, in 2014, 7/11 opposite a concrete dinosaur !

Squeeze some in to hot black coffee. Tried it in Bali and it'll surely wake you up !

This place has got gorgeous wood. I sort of wandered in during it's construction in 2009.

I must be able to, I don’t remember it being a problem. It might be now, ha.

Can you get comfortable sitting on the ground while eating, Andrea?

Bruce, I did ride up to MSL years ago, but from the east after Mae Chan. A tour group with luggage in a van. So technically that doesn't count.

Huge roads in the north close to Laos, are just waiting for China traffic. Did you see some of the signs, already in Thai, English and Chinese?
