After many months of planning and anticipation, my trip to Thailand is drawing nigh. (It's not often you can use the word "nigh", so I'll take advantage of the opportunity). Next week at this time, I'll be on my way over the international date line on my way to Bangkok via Tokyo. Today it was 11 degrees in Denver. Today it was 91 degrees in Trang, which will be my home away from home for 3 weeks in February. For your geographic edification I have attached a map of Thailand that shows you where Trang is. I'll have computer access while I'm there, so I can keep you apprised of my adventures in volunteer work, cultural experiences, and international fun. I'm going with Cross Cultural Solutions and my placement will be working in a day care center. Playing games with small children sounds like an excellent way to spend my time.
I'm mostly ready to go. However, my to do list doesn't reflect it. As long as I cross 2 or more things off each day, I'll be ready to hop on the plane on Tuesday morning.
