Phew, The week/weekend has flown by sooo quickly!! It was one of those weekends where you wish didn't have to end so quickly!!! Yes, I got through my first week of 'work'-work mates are really great people. Very friendly. I am interested in the work they do. Basically they are a consultant company who works in partnership with NGO (international organizations) such as World Bank, UNDP, and so forth. The projects that I they want me do are a few projects working with the World Bank and The Poverty Reduction Fund-basically they want me to assist them in some field work\studies-which is all good to me, because I enjoy field work. I have met some people who I believe are good networks. I think this job here is a good way to reach out and network ... read more

I find it very funny how things are meant to just happen! And well that is exactly what happend to me! After Khon Kaen, I made my way to the border town of Nong Khai-It is funny story because I arrived, and well I just choose the best description off the Lonely Planet, so I decided to give this guesthouse a go. As I am walking through a little 'soi' (alley way) I make my way into the entrance of Mutt Mee guesthouse-a hidden paradise along the Meakong River...Initially I was going to stay one night, but that soon changed right as I entered the Patio, I knew right then that I wasn't sure when I was going to leave...one night, ended in four nights....I literally had to force myself out of the area....I remember meeting ... read more

Currently, I am sitting in a game shop/internet with a bunch of local kids playing video games..connection is okay-not too bad-I have been offline for about 2 days, believe it or not I was having withdrawels..ummm, sadly facebook withdrawels! I have just arrived in Nong Khai, which is along the beautiful Mekong River-fantastic! I went on an hour sunset boat ride, whilst having dinner, I met a British lady who is traveling alone, too. We chatted and it having company is always nice!! hehe...Well, I just got here and initially I was going to stay for one day, but the place I am staying is FANTASTIC! It is a guesthouse overlooking the Mekong River, and well I kinda need some R & R-as I have been on ... read more

So, My journey started in Albuquerque, New Mexico on June 4th at 6: 45pm. To be honest, I was a bit nervous and everything hit me, and I realised that I was REALLY GOING!!! From ABQ I went on to Phoenix, which I had an hour layover-then finally on to Los Angeles. I arrived in the International Terminal of LAX and that's where it hit me that I am actually doing this all by myself!! It was funny because I was the only one with the big backpack in line...hehehe....most of the flyers were with huge boxes of merchandise from the USA to take back to their home. There were a few Americans on my flight, but majority were Asian. Luckily for me I do not stick out like a sore thumb, usually when I travel ... read more
