i would’ve had this stuff up sooner, but i had to find some sort of video editing software (preferably freeware) that enabled frame rate adjustment… surprisingly hard to find! my version of imovie didn’t have it, which was weird since an older version, imovie 6, did. pretty ridiculous. anyway, i got imovie 6 hd which you can download for free if you have imovie 8… so i did. you can get it via this link:
you’re supposed to buy it from apple if you don’t already have imovie 8 or something.
anyway, here’s a video of our scooter ride on huay kaew rd towards doi suthep (the mountain) to see wat doi suthep (the temple on the mountain):
our scooter kind of crapped out on us on that last big hill… right after we passed and ignored a sign that advised us to use the lower gear. it was ok though, we just pushed it up about 10 feet past the steepest part and started it right back up again! the scenery was amazing. we were also driving really slow. the traffic actually isn’t as terrifying as i thought it would be – people here seem to have a really good handle on their driving skills, and there’s doesn’t seem to be much in the way of road rage. nobody honked or yelled at us, even if they had to wait a little bit to get by us on the one lane road down the mountain.
(although i guess the matching shirts do make us look kind of dumb… you’re supposed to keep your arms/legs covered when you visit a temple, plus it gets kind of chilly on the mountain, and these were the only long sleeve shirts we had, damn it.)
