July 16: More Falafels and a Swiss Boy Named Christopher

Max and Sam befriended a delightful Swiss teenage boy named Christopher, and our two familes ended up spending the better part of two days together. We had several meals and quite a few adventures around Chiang Mai. Christopher and his parents Peter and Sorros have reminded us that families are families regardless of their nationalities, languages, origins and appearances. Yet the differences between our lives have made for stimulating conversations and wonderful stories. Together we spent quite a bit of time playing in our hotel pool, with many spirited battles and acrobatic stunts. We hired a couple of Tuk Tuks for another exciting dash across town to our new favorite Chiang Mai eating place, Jerusalem Falafel Restaurant (35/3 Moon Muang, A. Muang Chiang Mai, tel 05-3270208). Once again Zahavit did not disappoint, and neither did her delicious Israeli cuisine. We introduced Christopher and his parents to her, and had a nice late lunch. We mentioned that the three boys (and their Dads, too!) wanted to go to the go-karts, and she threw us all in her little pickup truck and drove us over there. We raced around and had some great "boy time" together. Zahavit even waited for us and drove us back to her restaurant. We had yet another nice evening in the night bazaar, and even found a new suitcase to hold all of our newfound bounty from several days of furious shopping.
