Well, I made it back alive. Krista and Jerry met me at the airport and Jerry drove us home in a fierce rainstorm. It was so good to see them, and the girls waiting for me back home.
But so far I haven't left the house. It's COLD outside! And I'm dealing with the jet lag (it's 2:21 in the morning in Chiang Mai) and a very upset stomach--I think that's from the final insult of airline food.
I'm almost ready to grab the wheel again and get back to work. I've also got 4 gigabytes worth of photos and video to sort through. I'll post some more photos soon. And I want to write up a comprehensive report on dental tourism in Chiang Mai. For whom, I'm not sure.
Meanwhile, I've got about ten thousand hours of stories inside my head, just waiting for someone, anyone, to ask me a question about my trip.
So watch out!
