Thursday, Christmas day: Kirsten, Alicia, and I when to a place called Macro in search of cheese (almost non-existent here). For our Christmas dinner we feasted on toasted baguette slices, with olive oil, fresh basil, and mozzarella cheese! Oh, and homemade sangria (Alicia lived in Barcelona before, so she had the knowledge). Late in the evening, we were all able to speak with our families via telephone and skype.
Friday: Kirsten and Alicia left early for Laos! I left later in the evening. And, I'm pleased to say that after an 11 hour bus ride I am finally in Bangkok. Kali is en route, and we should be reunited around midnight tonight. Fulbright friends will be here in a few days.
Happy Birthday MOM!
Congrats on the graduation MAX!
Happy Anniversary MOM and DAD!
Happy New Year EVERYONE!
