Chiang Mai is a beautiful City in the north of Thailand, were I could celebrate the new year. After my head felt a little better I was ready for a good coffee and a stroll through the streets of the historic centre. There are about 200 buddhist temples and a lot of them are in the old part of town. The historic centre isn surrounded by a ancient town hall wich is build in a square with moats run parallel. On certain points you can cross bridges to attain the old part of town.
On my way through the lively streets the smell of fresh coffee rises up my nose. A little cart wich can be drawn by a bicycle is standing on the side of the pavement and behind the cart Sawang is brewing a coffee. Nomad Coffee I can read on the cart. Sawang offers hand filtered coffee, and coffee from aeropress – hot or over ice. The coffee is grinded freshly for every coffee, with an attachment on a drill. I am going for an iced coffee, take a seat of one of the little stools next to the cart and watch Sawang making some coffee. He is selling some postcards with pictures he took while traveling, as well as two books of the journeys he was traveling by bike for a few month, but without the coffee cart.
