Home Again, Home Again - Jiggety Jog

While it's been a better month in Thailand than some visits here over the years, my time has again drawn to a close and it's time to gather my stuff together, sit on suitcases to make everything fit and do some final catching up by phone with the friends I couldn't make time for this trip.

My list of friends here in this magnificent place continues to grow, and the camaraderi I share with them - much like the guys above - is something I value a great deal.  Thank goodness for email and skype to fill the time until I'm again Thailand-bound.

As is usually the case I expect to have my internal clock knocked for a loop as I jump a dozen time zones and the International Dateline, but it's my plan to be back posting by Monday from the US of A.  I never look forward to the butt-numbing 20+ hours of travel home, but there's something compelling about being in my own bed, and that's where I'll catch up on sleep this weekend.

I hope you enjoy your weekend, whatever it is you end up doing.

What's this? No mention of St. Patrick's Day? Are you sure you're American? 555

Looking forward to seeing some great photos and reading good stories.

Only a couple of months till I'm back in LoS

Bao Bao, I hope you arrived home safe and sound. It will be my turn to take off at the end of next month (after Songkran).

I hope you had a magical time in the Kingdom.

If it's any consolation I did have corned beef and cabbage on the 17th, but that only because it's what I was served at dinnertime. Ireland is still a country on my list of places I'd enjoy visiting, though.

Keith - Yes, I'm home safe and sound. Be prepared for some warm weather. It was in the upper 90s (F) the entire time I was there, and the humidity was high, to boot.
