Written from Hoi An, Vietnam, about Chiang Mai, Thailand

Here's something you don't expect to see when you're walking around Thailand, on your way to a famous temple called Doi Suthep:


For those of you who haven't already figured it out, that's Chiang Mai University. Matt and I couldn't get enough of the fact that there's ANOTHER CMU. Yes, we're well aware of Central Michigan University, but we're SO not even going to talk about them here. We're talking about the CMU in Thailand, the one that has a pagoda right on campus.

We decided that would really spruce up the CMU in Pittsburgh. That and some elephant statues.

We walked around the campus looking for a bookstore so we could buy a tshirt, but alas, we were disappointed. Instead, I made Matt take a picture of this sign, because somewhere in there are the letters for "CMU" in Thai:

Did I mention that we're total dorks? Because in case you hadn't noticed, we're TOTAL dorks. Also, GO TARTANS!!!!!

Nostalgic for Pittsburgh already? Can you tell I'm catching up on your blog after getting back? By the way - the shabat post was awesome and I'm glad Matt made you call (wasn't sure you would look back that far for comments). BTW it was on the 4th.
