I had a great time in Cologne this week, showcasing our partners at dmexco, and traipsing around the city with Sebastian. One of the best things about all the travel I've been doing has been building a squad that reaches some far-flung corners, and cris-crosses in unexpected places. And now, finally, home for a few weeks, to catch up with those who matter most. Just being in Brooklyn feels like nesting at this point.
I'm really loving Chiang Mai. Today I hung out with some elephants in a river — I fed them, washed them, got them muddy again, and got myself clean again. It's a stupid tourist cliche, but it's also legitimately awesome, if you go to an ethical camp. They're such beautiful animals, and smart enough to know how to ply the tourists for food and mud rubs.
More photos later, but for now, here's this elephant selfie. (n.b., elephants hate taking selfies, because they can't see your hands, which should always contain bananas or corn.) #thailand#chiangmai#travel#elephants
View from my hotel room. You can kinda see the river in the lower left, which is surrounded by old market shacks and occasionally crowded with trading boats. A big contrast from the skyscrapers on either shore.
