Everybody was looking forward to the June Lunch Bunch meeting, which took place at the 4 Seasons Resort, the Regent Chiang Mai, just in time to sit at the beautiful restaurant overlooking the rice fields before the existing tenting will be replaced by a dramatic classical Thai roof. It proved to be another highlight lunch, especially after Karen & Michael Kemp invited all the ladies to their beautiful private residence for coffee and desserts. It was a gesture which was not only sweet and generous, but also very well received by everyone, as it was the best ‘excuse’ to sit together a little longer, to chat and exchange news. Thank you Karen for a wonderful lunch!
