Day Trippin' Around 'My Patch' in Northern Thailand

This part of the world is perfect for bike owners.
On any one day it's possible to see most of these scenes, if not all of them.

The road from home.



Street markets with fresh and inexpensive produce three times a week where I live.





Pine-apples at about 60 cents.



A wide variety of tracks to ride.













Coffee shops have appeared at the most surprising locations.





And as I reported in 'A Day with the Hmong', there are at least nine different amazing 'Hilltribe' groups to mix with and learn from.





Plenty of nice scenery and perennial water-falls.









Some spectacular northern Thai (Lanna) architecture.



Although many are living in much more humble premises.



Colourful Temples everywhere.





And hundreds of ancient Temples, many still in use.



An interesting variety of wildlife.









And flora.



During any ride it's possible to stop at any local food stall and enjoy tasty, inexpensive food.



The two negatives are this annual 'burning off', which causes serious health and pollution problems.



And we don't have this!
