December was a busy month for the club, with procurement, packing and deliveries of winter clothing, teddy bears and food to the needy. Meanwhile, Chiang Mai province has seen an influx of tourists as "cold" weather brings in-country tourists eager to experience the novelty of wearing winter clothes. Road traffic almost seems to be back to "normal", i.e. slowed to gridlock on the city streets.
Covid-19 numbers continued to decline in the province during December, but took a worrying up-tick toward the end of the month and the first few days of January as the Omicron variant found its way into Thailand. We plan to restart in-person meetings in January and hope we don't have to return to ZOOM soon.
