looks like we made it...

i made it to Thailand! and we are in the middle of a 6 hour layover then we leave for Nong Khai. the plane ride wasn't too bad considering we were up in the sky forever. AND they had a tv screen on the back of every seat, so you could pick what movie you wanted to watch. (see the picture to the right for proof) and the first one that can tell me what movie is up on my back-of-the-seat-movie-screen, wins a prize: a matching set of Hmong pillowcases** and usually i don't give those out unless you're getting married. So i watched several movies, ate some Korean food, made friends with a Lao man going to Pakse for the new year, and chatted with Kham's dad about the scarcity of dogs on the streets of Savannakhet due to the popularity of eating them. i guess that the lack of supply, high demand, will drive up the prices. but Kham's dad was insistent that its the Viet community that got the Lao to eat dog. well, i can't say nothing cause it was the Lao community that got me to eat dog. and i promise this will be my second to last reference to dog eating while on my trip.

P.S. How is the weather? I am going to die from the humidity? Also, how much jerky has Kham consumed on the trip so far?

Yeah!! Joseph has a blog. This is the best thing since curry (I personally prefer green curry to red, but I eat both with fervor).

Joseph, nobody on God's green earth can NOT name that movie. common, give us something harder! like, name that food. or name that dog. or name that thing floating in the soup.
(ps- I love the travelogue, you are good at writing them. safe travels..!)

That's not fair that Jacob gets the pillows. He's going to be on the trip with you. I wouldn't have won though - I didn't know it was Singing in the Rain.

We're keeping you away from Boo when you get back to Seattle.

Jacob does NOT win the pillow cases... he is an employee of padek productions due to co-producing credits for CTM - even though he isnt getting paid. therefore, katie (who answered in an email) wins the prize! besides, i think she might have sent her email before jacob left his comment. sorry jacob: buy your own pillow cases. more contests to come!

don't worry about how much jerkey i have eaten. there will be plenty for you (fake veggie eater) when you get here. and joseph says he is saving some crickets for you too.

Haven't talked to you for a long while. Sounds like your having a great time. We will have to catch up when you are back. Enjoy the rest of your trip.
