12-15 May – Chiang Rai, Thailand

We are resting for a couple of days in Chiang Rai. We have been going at a very intense pace lately. There are many things to see in Thailand, and the driving takes time in the mountainous north. Our next destination is Laos.
We found a Swedish bakery where we have enjoyed Swedish cookies and cinnamon buns. When Tinna tasted the cinnamon bun she exclaimed: ‘These taste exactly like grandmother’s cinnamon buns!’.
The foundation which operates the bakery also runs several orphanages. We visited their orphanage in Hua Doi where 57 children, aged 7-18, have found a new home and a future. Well done!
