just a quickie today guys cos im off out to a bar in a bit!
when i finally leave chaing mai i wont be able to update the blog as often until i get to oz cos i probs wont have free net on tap but we will see how it goes. stranded in chaing mai at the mo cos of the protests still, no trains, airports closed. thinking the way forward is a bus. weve also had to change our route, instead of heading to phuket and doing the west islands first we are oing stright to the east islands because of the mither with trains etc but its all good, im just desperate to get to a beach now. been away like 9 days and still no beach or sea. cant wait!! need a tan haha big time. so yeh, hopefully leave on a bus to bangkok on monday now and see what happens from there but its all good fun.
went on a thai cookery course today which was awesome!! i cooked chicken and coconut soup and then sweet and sour chicken and pad thai noodles and then thai red curry!! also made spring rolls from scratch and ate some gorgeous sweet sticky rice with mango and some spicy papaya salad. it was all amazing and the day was cool because the chef took us to the market to teach us about the ingredients and buy them all first. we got to eat everything we made and try eachothers bcause there was a few different ones to choose from. probably shouldnt tell you all that ive learnt to cook all of this cos youll all have me cooking it for you when i get back haha. got a free cookbook and everything though which is well good and even a certificate to say i completed my course!
thats all i have time for right now but we are still having lots of fun and mising everyone lots but we are surprised at how fast its going. in one way its good becuase we will be happy to come home but of course we dont want it to go too fast because we have a lot to fit in and see!
hope everyones checked out the cpitures of the trek etc and thanks so much for all your messages, keep them coming along with any news from home!!
lots of loves x x x x x x x x
