I suppose that I’ll have more to say about Thailand. Later. Right now, mostly, all I can say is that it is in a radically different time zone, being twelve hours different from Washington, DC, which is pretty much the best possible difference if your goal is to cause crippling jet lag.
There was some new family to meet. Beautiful scenery. Elephants. Street noodles. Drinking soda out of plastic bag.
As I said before I left, I got a lot of reading done (four books and half a dozen short stories, plus I re-read a lot of Wordsworth).
Now, I’m just not at all excited about going back to work.
