Postcards From Chiang Mai 1

Updated:

I am just about to zip off to for the second time and I realized—I still haven’t shared any photos from the first time I went! The reason for this is simple: I was sick every day I was there in early 2012. I made the mistake of visiting during burning season and could hardly breathe the entire time I was there. I didn’t even know what was going on at the time, a consequence of my inexperience with extreme air pollution and the lack of a cell phone (on which I would have certainly read about it in the news as I did after returning to ) a few days later. “National Haze Crisis Declared”, the headlines read. Just my luck!

At any rate, I thought it might be interesting to dust off some of those old photos, retouch them a little, and share what little I saw of the most culturally significant city in northern before succumbing to the miasma. And here they are—a few images captured in those fleeting moments of lucidity between bouts of illness. May my next trip be much more fortunate than the last!

If you’re keen on seeing more from my first trip to just follow the preceding link and browse around!
