|Windmall built by a immigrant from Finland in 1906.|
Near my dad's house runs a river called the Amnicon which eventually flows over some fantastic waterfalls and then making its way in the Lake Superior, the largest lake in the world. Usually the lake is too cold to swim in but where the Amnicon River empties out into the lake it makes for some good swimming because the water is warmer.
On the way there you can see an old windmill that was built around 1906 my an immigrant from Finland used to crush grain. It is a national landmark now. There is also an old Finnish farm there as part of the scenery.

Actually this was taken after riding with my brother Jason on a perfect late summer day. The spring and summer here really was the worst...cold, rainy and just not much fun so now we have to make the best of the nice days we are having. Tomorrow we are off to ride some more and hope to have some more photos, video and overall work on my blog a bit more.

I'm back in my old neighborhood of Thong Lo for a month and seems like on a brutally hot day like today it's most comfortable to stay indoors. I found a nice Japanese coffee / tea house / massage spa yesterday but they weren't open today. Earlier I was searching for a place to chill out and wasn't too impressed so I won't even write about that place. Only thing to say is that the 'free' Wi-Fi became 50 baht /hour after you used it for an hour.. Lame!
Now I'm right across my condo on Sukhumvit (Thong Lo 55) at a really lovely place called Domus cafe. It is a wine / coffee restaurant with great decor. There is even a Gustav Klimt reproduction upstairs. And yeah there are 2 floors which makes it really spacious. I'm eating basil pork with rice and a fried egg (pad kapow moo sai kai dao) for a reasonable 60 baht. The Wi-Fi is really free and fast. Overall this is a great place to relax, eat, drink and hang out. My Location@12:54pm,4/22 ถนนสุขุมวิท, Khlong Toei Nuea, Vadhana, Bangkok 10110 http://m.google.com/u/m/xs4qv6 L
