Free Day

January 27

Free day and I decide to take it very easy.

Arose early again and was picked up by a taxi at 6AM and driven the short distance to see th monks again. A very different scene than yesterday; no rain and many more people lining the curbs to give alms as the monks pass. I still don’t really know what the hell I’m doing, but have at least a few salvageable shots.

Back to the hotel for breakfast. Carol goes off with four others in the group for a cooking lesson at The Sofitel, including shopping for the food at the local market. They report that it was great fun.

I spent my time farting around with various technical issues, some of which were solved Ann not. Karl spent a lot of time with me on the iPad issues and also looking at and commenting on photos, and showing me some new apps that should help me. He set me up on Google Photos, which should improve access to photos and organization, and downloaded Snapseed a great app for modifying photos.

We meet the group at seven in the lobby and go to dinner. Afterwards, we walk through the night market, buying a few little things and taking photos.

Manage to get lost walking home, take a tuk-tuk driver who doesn’t know where the hell he’s going, so we make him take us back to where we started and find another driver who knows the way to the hotel.

    Don’t know what “this” means. If you mean where the accident happened, it was in Thailand, making our way to Laos.
