Well, you're about ready to leave Thailand, I should think... it's a day and a half on this time zone until you get back, so with a flight taking 24 hours ish and the time change, I think you'll be leaving in a few hours. Have a good flight

Wow, great Mama! I mean, sorry it was cold but it's great that you met some fun travel buddies :) Have a great time!

You need more fat on you, then you won't be as cold! See Ursa vs. Orange... Sounds like a good travel experience, after all, you've been too hot for weeks now. Glad you had windows and decent companions.

Love the great descriptions of the flora and fauna. The snake thing...not so much! Stay well.

You seem to be having the time of your life in all these locations and animal encounters. are you taking pictures?/ Ride on or walk on, watch for snakes.I personally am afraid of them.
28th March 2012

Wow, did you get a picture of the snake? I am glad you got a warning, snakes sort of go about their own business rather calmly. Nice wildlife. We have birds and rabbits and mice which Ursa eats. <3

Going or coming, I think it is very enlightened of the Thai to educate their water buffalo! In many countries, they do not go to school at all!

Whar wonderful memories you are making. Enjoy every second. Xo

Hi Laura,What a miserable experience! It demonstrates once again that so much of the quality of life is due to our institutional structures and those aspects of culture that relate how we treat each other. Individuals vary enormously and c
limate and natural resources (relating both to beauty and to wealth) are of course important. Most of the pictures we take memorializing our travels usually focus on this. But it still comes down to how we're welcomed and how fairly we're treated.I hope the rest of your time contrasts favorable with these past few days.

Hi Laura enjoying your blog tremendously. What are your next "poject"
17th February 2012

Oh, very good information, very educational and interesting :) Keep up the good writing!
17th February 2012

Hey Laura! How are you? I've realized I don't have your email address.. But I see you're back in Thailand now - what plans have you made? Are you going south?I'm enjoying being at home. My sister had the baby five weeks early, so the little
girl is already here :) I hope everything's good, and that it wasn't too sad to leave Wat Opot..Happy travels!

Geckos are cute... I used to have them crawling all over my doorway in the summer at times. It's pretty good that most of the creatures in your room are predators; this probably goes a long way towards your living space being habitable and
not infested with worse creatures.As for communicating with the spider - ::Uh, you're obviously not thinking hand signals and body language?:: --Right. Sorry. o:-) I don't believe that any progress has been made on successful comm w/ arachnids, but maybe you got Spider 4.4?Good to see a blog entry. I enjoy reading them!

Well, the bonus of having spiders and geckos and frogs, aside from their eating bugs, is that they are some of the more sensitive (environmentally) species, so it sounds like the country there is at least fairly healthy. As long as they all
have the proper number of legs and heads and such, that is. Good luck with the spiders! It reminds me of, one time when I was staying at Amanda's house (this was Amanda who you don't know, she lived in Berwick with her family at the time, I was spending a week or so there one spring break, or summer) in a sleeping bag on the floor and we were yapping, and a GREAT BIG SPIDER came up out of the sleeping bag (I was in it) and crawled right up onto my collarbone! Neither of us was overly happy; I was pretty freaked out. I think we moved into her car and slept there for the night and went nuts cleaning the next day. But it was very startling, and I do not envy you the spiders. That's what cats are for - eating them! Shall I send you a cat? Comet is a good hunter ;) anyway, glad that y'all got smart to the poisonous snakes before something serious happened; they are one of those species where time is important and with you being out in nowhere I'd worry about getting someone air-lifted out in time :/ So glad you are watching carefully now. The frogs just sound funny, too. Hope you're getting pictures!

I remember volunteering :) Very inspirational, nice job! Can't wait to hear more about your adventures!
24th January 2012

Bet you are glad you're warm at least! It's gone from -22* to +47* in 48 hours. Hugs.
24th January 2012

Sounds lovely! I wish I had gotten to pet the python; large snakes are so beautiful. Glad you tried it and hopefully you got a picture. Also glad the crocodiles were not given the option of eating the tourists (that would be a nightmare, ra
ther)...maybe they tag them? Hopefully? Maybe. Anyway. Enjoying your blog entries and hope you keep having new xp!
