1-2) Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha came to power via coup d’etat in 2014.

He is unpopular with young people and the pro-democracy movement. Coups are quite common in Thailand. There have been 12 since 1932

3) the black marker tags are also political. It’s a Thai pun that says “Thailand” and a curse word at the same time

4) there’s a women’s prison in Chiang Mai and the inmates can join a program where they are let out of their cells for part of the day to practice Thai massage. This is to help them find work and reintegrate into society when they complete their sentences. I was gonna give it a try cuz it’d be cool to say I got a massage from a serial killer or something. Sadly most women in prison in Thailand are there on drug offenses

5) butterflies are hard to photograph

6) women’s ex-prisoner massage + butterfly + rainy season + you would think a city with a regular, predictable rainy season would have a better drainage system + beer bottle flame + these guys’ job is to use long poles to lift up the electrical wires so the parade float can pass under, then quickly run ahead to the next intersection in time to do it again

7) selfie with security camera

8) bamboo products, planting rice, and cockfighting farm, fun for the whole family

9) plastic fish sleep mask, not a smart purchase

10) no Buddha tattoos

Candle number 18 lights up today from the Ex-Prisoners Massage Center.

2014 opened in Chiang Mai the first massage salon for women who have been released from prison. Meanwhile, there are several centers. There is also the possibility to book a treatment directly in the prison - women who will be released in the next six months can earn some money. Most of them are destitute. The small wage should give them a better start out there. Even after that there are opportunities for them to be reintegrated - in Chiang Mai there are many massage salons for former prisoners. I have already seen two of them from the inside. For me it was a gift! It didn't matter for me why they were behind bars. I only saw the person. A person loved by God.
In the Christmas time gifts belong somehow to it. This buying stress mostly annoys me, although I like to give presents to others. Jesus also received gifts for his birth, one can say now. Yes, but I believe that quite a few of us already have pretty much everything. Maybe just give something to someone who has nothing or little? Or not to see "giving something" as a material gift. How about "giving time" or dealing with people who you would never meet in everyday life? I deliberately decided to have a massage with the ex-inmates: I want to support them with my money. And I hope that I could give the woman and the whole project some joy - even if it was only at the moment when she realized how immobile I am and how she had to laugh heartily.
I include all those who are currently in prison especially in my prayers and hope that they will have a good start after their imprisonment. For them candle no. 18 burns today.🕯

Today in #chiangmai , #Thailand Johnny and I visited The Women's Massage Center (By Ex-Prisoners).

Next door is a massage center run by the prison that teaches women inmates the trade so that they can have a future after their term. (You can also receive a massage here but they were booked.. so we hopped over) WM Center employs the women after their term. It was an amazing 1 hour.. that cost under 10 USD. Both masseurs were kind and beautiful inside and out. Afterward, I bought this shirt, and a few other goodies. It was extremely fulfilling to us both to support these women and we will be back tomorrow! Kudos to my awesome man for finding this gem.

I had my first massage at this place where they teach ex prisoners massage.
It was so so good.



I had a 1 hour foot massage.
Then an additional 1 hour traditional Thai massage. I love when they twist you and you feel your whole spine adjust.

¿Sabéis esa fama de duros que tienen los masajes tailandeses?


Pues yo , después del trekking más increíble de mi vida y de una buena pateada por los mercados de Chiang Mai , decidí corroborarla en uno de los centros más recomendados , el de reinserción de ex prisioneras.... Oí crugir partes de mi cuerpo que no sabía que podían crugir (de ahí mi cara de acojonada antes del masaje) pero el sufrimiento merecio la pena , como todo hasta ahora en este viaje!! #womensmassagecenterbyexprisoners #chiangmai #norththailand #doiinthanonnationalpark #amoviajar❤️✈️ #thaimassage #saturdaymarket #mequieroquedar

Melhor Thai massagem da vida! É um centro de reabilitação para ex prisioneiras.

A Nus, minha massagista, foi uma fofa, conversamos bastante, ela me contou sobre a vida dela, sobre a filha que tem quase a minha idade. E no final ainda fez um penteado lindo no meu cabelo. Estou apaixonada por essas pessoas e por esse país 😍😍😍 #thaimassage #womensmassagecenterbyexprisoners #chiangmai

Because I hadn’t had enough massages after all day at Thai massage school.

Bloody brilliant initiative. Lovely women.

어제의 치앙마이 올드 시티.
1. 신랑신부가 비둘기들이랑 같이 타패 게이트 앞에서 웨딩사진을 찍는다. 나는 비둘기가 싫다.
2.

세상 나른해보이는 스태프들이 일하고 있는 식당에서 타이티와 팟타이를 먹었고 그동안 잠깐 비가 왔다. 친절하지도 않고 무기력해보였지만 그게 식당이랑 잘 어울렸다.
3. 4. 올드 시티에는 장기 투숙객을 위한 렌트 하우스가 많고 그만큼 서양인도 많다. 왜들 그리 오래 투숙하는지 알 것 같다.
5. 영업중이었다면 꼭 들어가봤을 것 같은 미란다의 카페.
6. 선데이 마켓에서 산 바지. 대부분의 코끼리 바지는 100바트인데, 뭐가 다른지 모르겠지만 재질이 다르다고 저건 180바트나 한다. 물론 깎아서 150바트에 샀다. 걷다 지쳐 들어간 아카아마에서는 샤케라토를 마셨다.
7. 사원은 노관심인데 왓프라싱이 제일 유명하다고 하니 들어가는 봤다. 외국인한테만 20바트 입장료를 받는데 모르고 그냥 지나쳐서 들어가려 했더니 귀신 같이 불러서 돈 내라고 한다. 리빙포인트 : 옆문으로 들어가면 돈 안 낼 수 있다.
8. 유명하다고 해서 갔는데 위생 별로, 음식맛도 특출난 걸 잘 모르겠다. 혹여라도 기어다니는 바퀴벌레를 발견할까봐서 시선은 항상 허공을 향했다.
9. 원래는 건너편 스파에서 발마사지를 받으려고 했는데 예약 없이 워크인했더니 오늘은 풀이라고 했다. 마주보고 있는 여기는 출소자 언니들이 마사지를 해주는 곳. 내내 마사지사들끼리 떠들었지만 나쁘지 않았다.
10. 노스 게이트 재즈는 그냥 쩐다.

Our first night in Thailand we had to go get a Thai massage of course!!

They have a local massage locations that employ women who were previously in prosion (or you can go to the prision and get a massage as well). These women while in prision learn how to do thai massages so when they leave prision they have a skill and trade they can use. I love that they have something here to help them heal, prepare and be ready to be back in society. Your past mistakes should not define who you are today and I am so happy to help support these women! #thaimassages #thailand #exprisioner #womensmassagecenterbyexprisoners #dontletyourpastholdyouback #relaxing #ahhhh #lovedit
