Pat made a 14 hour drive to see the King's mother's mountain cabin, incredibly interesting. His driver, Neu, made it safe. Fluent in English, fluent in Thai history, fluent in Budhism, fluent in monks and their practices, fluent in meditation. We had 2 great days with him teaching us Thai history, culture, religion, foods & spices. We ate at very local restaurants (my lips still burn), local mkts, and the upscale mall. We saw the White Temple & its Gold Bathrooms. If you come to Chiang Mai, Pat's the guy
