We chose to visit Bangkok and Chiang Mai in Thailand. This trip was one of our best vacations, we might even go back over Thanksgiving. In Chiang Mai we had the chance to ride elephants and tuk tuks. The tuk tuks are pseudo-motorcycle taxis that I enjoyed way more than the elephants.
Cece fed the elephants bunches of baby bananas before their bath.
We also took cooking lessons at Thai Orchid cooking school. We learned to make chicken satay and spring rolls and seafood soup and more.

We have many, many, many more photos in Dirk's picasso album - email us for the link.
