Riding to Chiang Khang

We've hired a car and driver to go from Chiang Mai to Chiang Khang today, about a 6 hour journey. I'm sitting in the passenger side, the left side. I tried to climb in the driver's side by accident. As I type, I'm looking at Thailand go by.

Two observations:

1.According to his identity card, our driver's name is Mr. Deth.
2.The car is actually chilly from all the a/c. I looked down to see if I could turn it down and noticed that there is no heat in this car. Just a big circle of blue with no red option. Apparently, it is never cold enough in Thailand to merit having heat in a car. In the event of such low temperatures, one might have to resort to opening the windows.

Tomorrow, we cross the Mekong into Laos!
