Memories of Burma
I have enjoyed reading about your visit. It brought back memories of my own one week visit (maximum visa permitted at the time) to Burma for Christmas 1974. My wife and I arrived in Rangoon at 8:30 pm after the money changers had closed, and I asked another passenger how we were to get to our hotel without using foreign currency, which was illegal to use. He graciously said that we could use his car and driver, as his wife had driven to the airport to meet him. It turns out he was the British ambassador, and we rode his official car with the Union Jack flying to the hotel. A couple days after touring Rangoon we booked a flight to Pagan. We had wanted to stop in Mandalay, but the airfare was much more expesive. As it turns out, the plane landed in Mandalay on the way to Pagan. Why it would have cost more to stop over, I never found out. We were very impressed with Pagan. Shortly after we returned to Bangkok, there was an earthquake that extensively damaged the temples at Pagan. I guess they must have repaired them since then.

Still loving all your tales Jennifer, even worth missing out on silly internet games, which I hasten to add I'm addicted to, much better than the telly, and your stories better than both, keep them coming, they make me laugh out loud, billy and craig think I've gone mad . . . dont say a word, take care and continue to having a fabulous time xx

Lovin' Myanmar!!!
Hey Fiona, Myanmar is an incredible place. I love it here, indeed I defy anyone not to. The sights and scenery are fab but in reality it's the Myanmar people who make this such a wonderful place to be. Part of the excitement lies in being able to do things that would be vetoed by health and safety back home, I never realised what party poopers they were up until now! PS You would have a great time in Bangkok, I enjoyed it - just not much of a city girl at heart is all.

Still Here
Hey Cate, Christmas is nowhere near yet, stop you trying to spoil my fun with horrid thoughts! Dunno what books, will browse amazon at some point and let you know. Wish Pippa would stop eating things, poor old Simon loved his bed. Hope the market has improved if you e truly thinking of selling up. Is Dad building an extension to house the pair of you then? Hope everyone is well, see you all in several months!

How are the travels going? Hope you are still having as much fun. Books I can do, but I need hints on what type you would like. Not sure about us, we are thinking of selling the house and looking for something else, new neighbour is rather noisy and is pi**ing me off! Soon be Christmas and you will be home, Pip goes to work with dad and he says she seems to be enjoying it a bit more now, Simon appears ok even though Pippa ate his bed!! Dads house is changing as usual so nice things for when you come hoome. Take care and have fun x

Chrissie pressie
Gosh, what would I like? How about another 3 months travel? Honestly, I really don't know, anything at all would be fab. Books are always good, especially as I'm limited now due to the weight of the darned things. What about you, anything available over here that you or Chris would like (note I always need tips for the men in your lives, this time will be no excpetion)?

Am quite sure I'm having way more fun than you guys on the night shift (if I'm not them I'm clearly doing something very wrong indeed), of course I'd much rather be back home working with you but hey, them's the breaks and I'll just have to make the most of a bad situation eh!
