Making friends from all over the world has been an elixir for the kids (us, too). Everywhere we stayed, Merle and Mathilda made a new buddy or two, but the real standouts from the last month are Ila and May from Australia. Our time together with these girls and their parents, Niko and Jane, was short but definitely sweet.
Besides making friends, we also spent a solid amount of time swimming in the various pools of our guesthouses. The kids swim like fish these days and can tolerate really cold water, since a heated pool in these parts is unheard of.
I close the month with a few more random snapshots of our time up north. Our hearts are still warm with the connections we made up there. The fun continues down south, mostly in Krabi Province, where my reportage will soon continue. Expect a lot of pictures of water and sand.
