Here,the hottest place in Thailand,thought it fitting after being in some of the coldest inhabited places on earth,and enjoying it6,how crazy is that…..River Kwai,sounds like it reads.It’s a small village on the river and gets tourism from the terrible history of war and what people do to each other,some of the photos at the museum are just horrible,how people can be so cruel to one another makes me cry just to think of it,give me a minute,can’t see the letters on the keyboard…
Whew!!!!On another note,this area is where they mine all the rubies and sapphires in Thailand,another reason to be here.
I have an old friend here,he’s a crazy man from Australia.We got on the piss last nite(Drink beer) and caught up on what y7ou talk about when you drink too much.This morning was lot’s of juice and a massage,much better now.Actually the first massage in days,I hurt my back and thought better of some lady bending me like a pretzel!!!he meds must be good,can’t feel a thing,not sure it’s a great idea but for now I’ll do without pain…
I’m off to Davs’ house(Aussie bud)today and have a sleep over,eat,drink and all that.He has a lovely wife and two beautiful kids,should be fun.
Look,as soon as I figure how to put photos on this stupid thing I will,internet cafes are a little sticky about adding programs,so just wait and not be so impaitent..
I’ll probably stay up here for a week,Bangkok is far away in so many ways,the rural thing is much nicer anjd the people from around here are Isarn,they are of Loa dissent and super nice,also their food is very different.They say(if you can believe)that the most beautiful women come from here,actually my friend I met in november is from here,yes,she’s pretty nice and with me now,oops,out of the bag….She was actually waiting at the airport for me,hmmmmm….Anyhow we brought some clothes for the kids and will have a nice visit,sooo much info.
Anyhow I’m off to the hills,wish me luck,heheheh.

Hi,well,leaving Ottawa was the start,kinda’ mixed feelings…Let’s not dwell on it.

I hit the trail by bus sat. morning off to Hamilton to visit my Aunt and carrying lobsters for din din,had a great visit and sunday was another part of the journey,visit an”Angel” in TO.A case of beer lot’s of laughs,and more “Angels” and my cookie stash was a hit,I’m still chuckling at these big bikers munched out,heheheh.

It was a really neat flight as,we flew(morning)north through james bay to the Artic then west to russia,mongolia into Hong Kong,all the way the light and sunrise and desolate landscape below,man,not fo me….

I don’t think I want to come back after the 25hr flight,man that’s long and would rather someone else filled in.It was nice and my seat-mate was nice too,mmmm.

I got cut-off(wine)until they realized there was another long-hair on the flight??!!!

Finally,Thailand is in site and my aching tail-bone can’t wait.I think sometimes of monks sitting for long peroids of time,not me mister….Ok

Here,massage,fresh juice and foods,and some ol’ expats sitting in the same place,much like at home,Where was that again???Catching up on stories and peoples,some good laughs so far.Seems like the jet-lag not soo bad and the 36C temp is ok too.

Off To visit  a retard friend(Aussie nut)up on the River Kwai(as in Bridge,see the movie)tomorrow and have a vis and a couple of warm up parties,the wife will cook up a storm and we’ll all enjoy,like to have a Barbie…..

Well,hope this is a good start,blogging that is.

Sawassdee(bye bye in Thai)

Well,it’s not that much fun,moving that is,but to think that shedding the household and getting out on the road seeing different places and people,I’m stoked.I was having initial problems getting this blog on the move but thanks to my technical adviser we are up and running…

This is a test.
