Today’s competition, run in conjunction with our sponsor Mr Santiham’s Whorehouse and Diner, asks the question: What was the original meaning of the words ‘Cook Whore Dust’ before it went through Google Translate and written onto this board, outside a restaurant in Chiang Mai?
Chiang Mai has a reputation among digital nomads and travel bloggers as a place to get work done but those without a laptop can also find ways to be productive. Whether it be a skilled hand or just a willing hand, the following organisations all welcome a little help in achieving their goals. These NGOs, not for profits and, in some cases, businesses, can be found either in the city of Chiang Mai itself or in surrounding villages and towns.
If you have kept up with our Facebook updates you will know we have spent the past few days charging around Chiang Mai with a water gun, randomly or deliberately squirting people - young and old alike - in the face.
I’m sitting in a pink towel (actually, it’s puce; yes, definitely puce) listening to the whoops and cheers as our neighbours soak each other and passing scooters with water. On the bed are laid out various items of clothing. What does one choose from our limited wardrobe for charging about town like a maniac squirting people in the face?
In April the thoughts of most visitors to Chiang Mai are focused on the upcoming Songkran celebrations with arrivals timed to bloat the city’s populace in the days in and around the middle of the month. Earlier arrivals though will not only have the opportunity to bag their accommodation before prices rise but also to witness the under the rader Poi Sang Long Festival.

We recently announced that we are off to Southeast Asia, where aside from flying in to Bangkok we have few plans as to what we are going to do, where we will go or even how long we are going to stick around in the region.
