It’s all still frightfully busy this side. LOTS of work (accompanied by lots of moaning by me), lots of dinner invitations. Buddhist festivals, shopping, trips on Kaptai Lake, plus a cold. Equals a very tired Stella.
Of all the fun recently, the highlight was getting back from dinner last night, after rice wine, on a the world’s most unstable boat. It’s a little unmanned community boat, that just sits around on the water waiting for people who need it to a cross a section of the lake. It was a stumble down the river bank to get to it, a scramble up the river back on the other side, and a LOT of laughing in-between while trying not to fall into the lake. You have to pull yourself across the water with rope (no oars), which Tony had to do by the light a head torch, totally unaided by me sitting in the back slightly drunk, giggling and shrieking ‘If I fall in, I’m pulling a sickie tomorrow’. Just how we made it safely across is anyone’s guess.
Right. Back to work now. Another full day training session tomorrow. Man, I’m going to need a little holiday after all this work and social engagement.
