Hitting the beach in Thailand

Kho Pha Ngan
Emma enjoys an evening on the beach.

I’m sitting in under a fan in an internet cafe in Khao Lak, Thailand, sipping on an iced coffee from a 7-11 (which are on every street corner). We packed our trusty Macbook Pro between a couple sleeping bags, said a couple Hail Mary’s for it, and shipped it home on our last day in Ukraine – so we have to go old-school with the internet cafes to stay in touch.

Anyway, we’re alive and sweating and enjoying our break between the stresses of Peace Corps and the inevitable post-Peace Corps “let’s figure our lives out again” phase.

  1. Looks beautiful! Hope you don’t cook while you are there. Looking forward to seeing you next month!

  2. Wow! Can’t wait to hear about your traveling adventures! I’ll be there with my smiling face to greet you in DC!!!

  3. LOVELY photograph! Thanks for sharing the ambiance with us–I can just feel the “sultry” day, the sweltering heat, taste the iced coffee 😀 Soak it all in for the memories! Hey, and if you & Emma could let me know your “homecoming” dates in Missouri ASAP (per my email to Emma) I would really appreciate it!

  4. Macbook Pro arrived in fine condition, but in a totally taped up & destroyed box. Very good idea to pack the sleeping bags around it! Have a great, relaxing time in SE Asia. Love you bunches and looking forward to seeing you in person next month. ♥ Mom G.
