Notes from Thailand - The Cheddi

Feeling a bit posh one day we went for afternoon tea and cocktails at the Cheddi with Helene and Ellen, again in Chiang Mai. The Cheddi was so beautiful and relaxing, with excellent service and mojitos.

For puds I had the creme brulee, to be honest I was so full already. My greed showing there...oops. The creme brulee was delicious though and accompanied by mango with basil. Seems very trendy to add basil to desserts at the moment.

At the hotel they had lovely water features with floating lanterns containing lotus flowers. Just as dusk fell a little man waded into the water and exchanged the flowers for candles. Thank you little man! What incredible attention to detail.
