We had lots of fun on Saturday 12th August at Chiang Rai Saddlebags during the first Assero Open Day. The day was kind to us and it didn’t rain. Which was lucky since this year the rainy season feels wetter than usual. What surprised me most, though, was people arriving from 8.15am onwards. These Chiang Rai folk get up early! (In Chiang Mai many shops don’t open until 11am.) My thanks to everyone who came and Marty and Woraphat at CR Saddlebags who were convivial and gracious hosts.
