It turns out that Santa didn’t forget us this year, as he made a stop by to see us in Thailand.

The resort has a very large area of lush greenery and quaint cabins scattered by the River Kwai.  It was a beautiful setting over Christmas day.

We met a wonderful Dutch family of five at the resort, the only other people staying there over Christmas.  They invited Jill and I to join them for dinner that evening, which we accepted.  We got a ride out to a local restaurant where we had Pad Thai dinner.

Jumping back a bit in time, we spent the morning of Christmas day out at the Erawan National Park to see the famous Erawan Water Fall.  It has seven tiered levels that requires some easy walking, many steep steps, and some minor rock scrambling to reach all seven levels.
