Am in Chiang Mai, with Rachel and Victor. This will be just text, till I get to London. I have heaps of photos (in particular of elephants: dancing, playing soccer, PAINTING, playing mouth organs, etc. I was very over-excited with them), but can't put them on as R and V's computer was stolen. I have enjoyed watching Rachel at work, teaching and counselling the ex-bar girls, plus some tutoring. Have loved the International Church, and various Bible studies she regularly goes to, but have really enjoyed foot-massages, tea shops, etc, and the whole tourist thing. Their home is lovely, and I have helped with some of the finishing off. Also visited the Village - both Victor's Mum and Dad sang Christian songs to me. Love , until London.

Hello my dearest Mother!!!!!!
What a wonderful adventure you're on, a path with all sorts of exciting twists and turns which will finally lead to US!

Please give Rachel's tummy a loving pat from me, and a kiss each for Rachel, Victor and you, and a stroke for Khaw!!

love Megs

thanks Mum, good to read how your journey is unfolding. Sounds a little undignified, all that Elephant palava.

Will do, my Megan. and there's a darling puppy called "Muffin". I have a pic of him with Flat Coco. Tom, I think you'd fall for the elephants too. I went with a sense of tourist duty, but I adored them.

Angela here Gretta, missing you and thinking of you often. Must be so sad to leave Rachel and the growing bump but how wonderful to be in England! And in summer too - hope there are roses, roses everywhere. All is well here - great service with Ross Green this morning.
