Rain on the Deck

The rain was unrelenting today, so I stuck the camera out the window and took a photo of the deck. It was the reflection of the bare trees that caught my eye.

My son and grandson enjoying the fire. No dreary photo of the local landscape could possibly compete with this for my photo of the day.

Birthday

It was my grandson’s First Birthday Party today…he was a little mystified by the cake but delighted by all the attention.

Snow on Fallen Branches

Back to reality, snow and freezing temperatures. A bit of a shock to the system, to say the least.

Above the Clouds

Heading home over more time zones than I care to count–and not at all sure whether it will be night or day when I arrive.

Yao Noi Village #1

We have arrived in Yao Noi, a small island off the Phuket coast, where we will be for the remainder of our time in Thailand. The local village is not without its charms (or its cats).

Takilek, Burma Street Market

We visited the border town of Takilek in Burma today. The country has only been open to tourists in the last handful of years, and remains one of the most isolated countries on earth. A fascinating place.

Wat Rong Kuhn #1

Visited the Wat Rong Kuhn (The White Temple) today on our way through Chiang Rai en route to the Golden Triangle. The temple is a bit of a Thai tourist trap, but pretty visually spectacular, even if the experience was a tad Disney.

Night, Bangkok

We have arrived in Bankgok and are more than a little wrung out by a long day of travel. All of us feel blasted by the heat, humidity and smog in this chaotic city, but we are charmed by the view from our hotel.

On our way to Thailand for the holidays; since I will be in the air for most of the next 24 hours, a photo from 10,000 feet must suffice.
