Spring Break!!! (except it's summer here)


I'm alive and going to Laos next week!

I don't have it in me to do a censored web-friendly report of how it's been working at an English summer day camp recently - but suffice it to say that I'm currently drafting thank you letters to both my parents for never sending me to Spanish or French or Japanese summer day camp. Crimony.

Really it's ok though, and I am very excited for my upcoming trip with my friend Rachel. We'll be going to Chiang Mai, Pai in northern Thailand and then Luang Prabang, Phonsaven, and Vientienne in Laos.

Love to you all,

A Taste of the Bizarre

I've had 48 fours filled with head-scratching, where-did-that-come-from moments. Here are three:

1. I braided pig-tails for 20 minutes while substituting in a kindergarten class.
2. I witnessed a grown woman retching in a classroom who then pretended like it was totally normal and happens all the time.
3. While stuck in traffic my taxi driver took out a flute and played three songs before traffic started up again.


Hope you're all lovely!
