A farewell reception was held on June 8th to say goodbye to the American Consul-General in Chiang Mai, Mr Michael Heath.

I was pleased to attend as Honorary Consul (designate) for Australia to provide my well wishes.

The lovely grounds of the American Consulate on the banks of the Ping River provided a suitable backdrop for this party style atmosphere.


A reception line to greet the American Ambassador and Consul General, a few short speeches with Michael’s in Thai and plenty of food and drinks from hot dogs and hamburgers to other favourites were on offer.

Mike was the Dean of the Consular Corp in Chiang Mai, been very involved in Northern Thailand  but is now looking forward to his new posting in Canberra, Australia.

Enjoy Australia – Mate
