January 1, 2013: Happy New Year! We spent a few hours walking around Chiang Mai's Old City with a friend. Here are some photos on the street and in two important temples.

This picture and the next three are in the Wat Phra Singh temple complex. The colorful paper banners are put up by people to gain merit.
I'm posting these on January 2. This afternoon we're flying to Luang Prabang in Laos, and on January 5 to Burma. The internet in these places may not be as good as in Thailand, so please understand if I can't post every day.
