Have I really been away for two and a half years?
I need a little intermission from Asia, from being abroad, from the frustrations. It's time to remember why I moved away again, time to take a step back and get out of the bizarre madness that has become my life.
Postbox letter from Sean
Things in Thailand changed, I noticed it right away. People weren't as nice as before.
Observations on a country and culture I'd almost forgotten
I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly, polite and nice the people were. Maybe this was because I was primarily in smaller towns and rural areas, but even while in the airports in Chicago and Denver, it just seemed so easy to strike up conversations with the people I were interacting with.
