Chiang Mai Two: Ancient and New

Wat Chedi Luang
It was my first full day in the city that will be home these next 5 weeks.  A logical place to start exploring it was at it's heart.  The center of the old city.  The 604 year old temple smack dab in the middle of town. Wat Chedi Luang.

After that, submitting to the drenching I was getting from the Songkran Water Festival, it was off to the Paradise Art Museum, a very interesting place featuring modern, 3D illusionary art.

Here's the video.  Enjoy!
