Sukhothai On New Year's Eve

Lots of things contrast the last three days in Chiang Mai here at Sukhothai. For starters, this place seems to be far less busier than the bustling city. It's also much warmer as well as less mountainous.

And as Julie and I attempt to embark deeper into the less touristed regions of Thailand in an effort to visit the acclaimed Thi Lo Su Waterfall, we're bombarded with incessant random sounds of loud fireworks as we're less than an hour away from 2009 in this part of the world. It sounds like a war zone here as I'm sure it sounds this way in other parts of the world trying to celebrate the New Year with the Roman Candles (which I believe is actually a Chinese invention).

Anyways, have a Happy New Year!
