A few words about Chiang Mai. Thailand's 2nd largest city, capital of the northern part of the country, it is a very pleasant city to spend a few days. The old city is surrounded by ancient walls, and in those 2 square kilometers (more or less) you have tens of temples to visit. To be completely honest after half a dozen I started to get a bit bored, and to entertain myself I started to take close up pictures of small statues and other artifacts, finding it easier than to photograph real moving people =). Results varied, but I could sometimes get interesting, slightly surreal effects.
