After flying from Bangkok to Chiang Rai, two friends from World Education collected us from the airport and drove us to the northern border town of Mae Sai, just a short hour away. A bowl of delicious noodle soup from the mobile soup stall outside the hotel was all we needed before falling into bed. The choice of meat for the soup included chicken feet, beaks and all other parts of a chicken. Fortunately the maker of the soup decided we were thigh meat ladies and left out the entrails, beaks and feet! Tomorrow we're up at 5:30am for the border crossing.
