chiang mai flood 2011

And this is why a picture is worth a thousand words.

I’ve been reading the news about the flooding problems Thailand is experiencing, reports of several feet of water encroaching over major roads brings back memories of past trips where I waded rather than walked down a street. But I didn’t realize quite how serious things were until I ran across this picture of a rather popular corner in Chiang Mai. This is where Changklan and Loi Khro Roads meet, about the middle point of Chiang Mai’s famous Night Bazaar. Reports are touri are still out and swimming through the market.

Radchada Cafe’s Gay In Chiang Mai website has a more detailed report; if you’ve never checked their site out before this is probably a good time to drop in.
