It's about 6:15 AM in the US and hopefully you are all still asleep. Here in Laos it's 6:15 PM and we will soon be sitting down to our non-turkey dinner. We won't miss the turkey, the sweet potatoes or even the pumpkin pie (which we can actually get here) but we will miss you, our friends. Please know that we are thinking of you today as you gather around the table with your family and friends and we wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
With the recent bombings in India, and the violence and take over of the airport in Bangkok, we have received many inquiries into our safety. Thank you all for thinking of us. Fortunately we are safe and have had no problems at all. We were out of India before the bombings and never even near Mumbai and out of Thailand before things got bad there as well. We will be going back to Thailand in several weeks but hopefully by then, things will have settled down. If not, we will find an alternative way to move on to China.
On this Thanksgiving, we are thankful for our safety, our health and for our friends and family who have supported us during this journey.
love, lisa, Marty, Siena and Avocet
