I thought I'd have another teaching gig in Bangkok, but that fell through, so this will be a genuine holiday. I get to be in Chiang Mai for Loy Krathong, the festival where huge lanterns are launched into the sky! And I'm planning to visit the temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia and possibly the charming city of Hoi An in Vietnam!
I'll be firmly on the tourist trail, and yet it still seems amazingly exotic to me.
And I get my smile back. For years I've been missing these two teeth. I'm going to practice smiling like Russell Brand--big and fearless.
So I'll keep y'all posted on what happens.
