Yes, I’ve been hunting. I’ve looked and I’ve looked and I’ve looked.
So far I’ve gone to several places around Chiang Mai University. I’ve been fortunate to have many Burmese friends looking out for me. They have taken me to various places for me to stay while I am here temporarily and places to consider after we move here. I kinda hang out here at the Hmwe restaurant and anyone comes by with a place in mind, I tag along with them. With an exception of a few that I found on-line and while out and about, I took the red truck or Song Thayaw (i think that’s how it is pronounced) to get around and see the places on my own. Clearly we need to have our own motorbike when we live in Chiang Mai and I need to learn to drive one.
So far I’ve looked at what they call apartments, they are basically furnished studios. I’ve seen rooms/apartments from 3,500B up to 14,000B with varying degrees of newness and spaciousness. A couple of them even have swimming pools. I actually like being close to the pool idea as this will make you very happy, Emma! I can just see Emma becoming one with the pool!
**While we are away from each other right now, when I am out and about I’m thinking of you and Daddy always. Looking forward to finally being here together living here as a family.
It’s been quite a learning experience. Here are some examples (where information is available in print/writing).
All the outlets are next to this TV stand.
Here is my high-tech room security!
So next up is for me to look at villages equivalent to a subdivision in the US (I think!) I’ll look especially around the area of where Emma will go to school.
It’d be really cool if we can live in a traditional Thai house! Really cool!
Until next house hunt report or another food post,
Cheers from Thailand,
