The Petryk's Round-The-World Adventure 2007/2008 travel blog

....Tim, Meo, Barb and Nick at the Empress Hotel....

....enjoying delicious Thai food....

....our friends Meo andTim....


Our flight to Chiang Mai wasn't until 5:30 p.m. so we took the opportunity to wander in and about the Causeway Bay shopping area until it was time to go to the airport.....we found another dim sum place called Little Sheep Restaurant and despite the fact that they spoke very little English we managed to order our usual selection of dim sum dishes....we did get a plate of chicken's feet by accident, but we managed to send them back and have the dish replaced with something else.....after lunch we went back to the hotel and picked up our backpacks and took the MRT to the Hong Kong MRT station where we boarded an express MRT train that took us straight out to the airport....no fuss, no muss....we should have something like that at home......we boarded our plane and headed for Chiang Mai, arriving at about 7:30 p.m...we were met at the airport by two friends, Meo and Tim.....two ladies from Thailand who along with a third friend Vilai, visited our friends Peter and Madeline in Edmonton in May, and whom we got to know just before we left on our trip and who asked us to contact them before we came to Thailand....Meo and Tim took us to our hotel from the airport so we could get changed and then we went out to a Thai restaurant where Meo knew the owner and we had a great meal including Pad Thai.....what a wonderful welcome to Thailand......
