Wat Phra That Doi Suthep Temple

I was looking for a map of Thailand and by accident found your site.
I saw that you publish pictures of travelers and that's why I sent you this picture...

The picture was taken by me, with a digital camera and it's a picture of the temple "Wat Phra That Doi Suthep" on the mountain Doi Suthep next to the city Chiang Mai in the north of Thailand. It was taken on December 2nd 2003.

I cycled up this mountain by rented mountain bike with a guy (Luke from Seattle) whom I had met in Chiang Mai. It was a tough 4 hour clime with an average speed of about 5 km/h but it was worth the effort, as you can see. The ride down was a lot of fun too, it took us only 20 minutes with an average speed of about 65 km/h. I can recommend this too anyone visiting Chiang Mai!

Thanks Klaas Zwetsloot :)
