Leaving Lovely Chiang Mai

New friend Mike
All day my heart has been a bit heavy because it was my last day in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I have loved this city for a month now and, as I told my daughter, I felt like I was leaving a little piece of myself behind.

My wise daughter, Vanessa, made the most wonderful comment, "No, Mom, it's more like you're collecting little pieces of yourself everywhere you go." Isn't that just the most wonderful way of looking it?

But the day was saved by meeting a new friend, Mike from Australia, in a coffee shop and having the most wonderful conversation. So, here's a picture and we'll be staying in touch. Yay!

I also thought you readers might enjoy a few of the pictures I've taken that had nothing to do with any of my posts but I think are interesting.

So, here you go as I wave a fond farewell to Chiang Mai.

I just call this the blue gate. I'm not sure what it signifies.
A quiet spot at Chiang Mai zoo where I sat for quite awhile.
