Finding peace in the countryside

IMG_1865

Nothing makes me happier than being in the countryside. Smelling trees, touching fresh basil, feeding the cat, reading, painting, swimming in a friend’s pool, seeing a wild fox, listening to music all day long… Pure happiness.

Improvising an artist space at my brother’s house, while he is in the fields (july, big month for harvesting), I am having such a lovely time. A perfect place for creativity.

Lots of love.

Made with Poo

Looking for something fun and interesting to do around Chiang Mai (Northern Thailand)? I suggest you to go to the Elephant Poopoopaper park, an eco-friendly place where they make paper with elephant poo but also Thai buffalo poo, cow poo or horse poo.

PooII

Out of curiosity, my british friend Lucy and I went there an afternoon. We agreed to say we had such a lovely time and we were pleasanlty surprised by our little discovery.

PooXV

A nice guide took us through eight different pavillons explaining each stage of the fascinating process. Do you want to understand how poo becomes paper? Follow me!

PooI

When the poo arrives, it has to be boiled to help the toxines reaching the surface. Then they have to wait for the poo to dry.

PooIII

Dry poo = no smell

PooIV

With this machine, they create balls made of clean poo-water-old paper and… food colouring (chemical free).

PooVI

Humid balls waiting to be transformed.

PooVII

They put these colouring balls into water and create sheets.

PooIX

Sheets drying in the sun. Et voilà!

The best part? You can make your own card with Poopoo products at the end of the tour!

Interesting AND fun, I told you.
