Chickens and Elephants

“My Grandma loves chickens,” I say to the 8th person in an hour. “She collects chicken figurines and other chicken stuff.” 

Lampang being the chicken bowl capital of…of the region, if not the world, I found chickens everywhere and on everything. Which of course made me think of my Grandma! And I am bad at keeping stuff to myself. So I made everyone think of my Grandma! 

Besides chickens, I found elephant stuff everywhere. My sister-in-law likes elephants. I did not tell as many people about her, but I thought of her often. 

Chickens and elephants. Grandma and sister-in-law. I will forever associate Lampang with those two people, even though they did not get to visit it with me. I think I am a little homesick this evening. But I am glad for this opportunity to travel and the fun of carrying memories of my loved ones everywhere I go!
