After a month in the mountains of Thailand, away from internet access and all things tech, I'm in a nice little hotel in Bangkok. There's internet access, but it isn't free, and the computers don't seem to have a slot for my little camera card. I'll post lots and lots of pictures when I'm back in the states. That will be in a few days! Woo hoo!
I've had an amazing trip and can't wait to tell you all about it. I went to many Buddhist ceremonies and parties and got a bit tanner than I was when I left the states.
I knitted a pair of socks for my aunt and am now knitting my second Jaywalker in Bangkok. I had high aspirations with my baggage full of sock yarn and Proust but it all came to naught. Lewis Carroll wrote that he believed in periods of extreme intensity followed by periods of extreme idleness, so I suppose that I have done the right thing by doing nothing at all after all that intense testing and studying and grading and what not.
Thanks so much for all your well wishes for my trip.
Pictures and postings to come soon.
