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!

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

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!

18th January 2012

wow that sounds great! very nicely written and great experience. i am doing some hiking here too, makes me think of Acadia as well! love you!
18th January 2012

Sounds like you got some things you needed/had been missing on this little adventure. I'm glad that the other people there with you are adventurous as well, it's always good to have a decent rapport. The monkey was probably being territoria
l, esp. as there were males in your group - they can be fairly aggressive (I dislike monkeys). Hope you get to have more adventures soon.

Sounds lovely. Very glad you are happy there and I know you'll bring some joy to these childrens' lives.
