A very Merry Christmas from us here in Chiang Mai, Thailand. On Christmas Eve we went out and found ourselves a small Christmas tree at a stationary shop, got some wrapping paper and did some very last minute Christmas shopping so that we each had a gift to open Christmas morning. We had dinner with a friend from our Myanmar volunteering and then came back to our condo to decorate.
Today (Christmas) we had a huge English breakfast and then Alayna set to baking a pie in our “kitchen” which consists of 2 spoons, 2 forks, 2 teacups, 2 cereal bowls, 2 plates and a microwave. With a little ingenuity, a handmade pie crust was made by rolling the dough with the teacup, and baked in the microwave. Voila a cherry cheesecake pie was made and consumed with merry cheer. Our plans for the rest of the day are to relax, go swimming in our pool and go to the movies later. We wish you all an amazing Christmas and wish we could celebrate with you. We are there in spirit (and occasionally video calls) and are thinking of you this holiday season.
