Hey I'm back!!!

Sorry it's been so long, I am in Kampaeng Phet visiting a friend and I have some time to go to the internet cafe, we have recently gotten internet back in my office at site but it is so slow that it's not worth it...
lets see...
about a week ago I moved into my own house, which is interesting since I have NEVER lived alone before and what a better time to start but in a foreign country where I can not communicate without a dictionary... I dont mean to scare anyone, i just found that ironic
What else
it is getting to be planting season so the villagers in my community are heading out to the field to plant the rice, sugarcane, casava, and Bananas that they make their living on,
and it is also getting into the rainy season, and I am okay with that because it was getting extremely HOT.
well my life isnt all that exciting at site, EX: yesterday I spent around 4 hours doing a 600 peace jigsaw puzzle of the japanese cartoon Doreman, with Luk-ete, and i really enjoyed it
After the super exciting puzzle adventure, I went with my host family to a Buddist Ceremony at the Wat in town, I dont remember the name of the ceremony and Im not sure what it was for, but it was beautiful, it was dark out and we all had incents, candles and flowers and we followed the monks around the wat while they chanted
Then I had people looking at me, because I look different, or as i like to call it... funny...
I have to say I now understand what it is like to a minority now (only with a lot of pointing and yelling Farang)
alright well my friend just got here to meet me... Say Hi Wesley (and he says "Hi")
Bye everyone
I love you and Miss you all
Becky

Hi Beck, I was just talking to your Mom and she told me you had move into your new digs and it took a little work to get it the way you would like it. And I thought your dorm room was....well, I be nice. Gram is in bad shape. She has apinched nerve in her back and she is really in a lot of pain all the time. She is doing theraphy, which to this point has not done much. She will be in the poolm on mon. which I hope will help. Started on the tent and I did all the ironing. We need you to do the LACE. Your the only one that really no's how. Sounds like you have done some of the ionterresting things to do. The cermony and the work in the gardens. Write more about those things and I will tell Uncle Tom to have Zack read about it. I know he would be interested.
We love you Beck GREAT gram and GREAT gramp <>< xx

Hey Becky,
My name is Jason Spindler. I just finished up my PC service as a bus. vol. in Peru. Im on my way to thailand for june and part of july and wanted to get in touch with some of the PCV's over there. Im hoping that you guys might be able to give me some thailand travel pointers (where i should go, stay do...). I know our group in Peru we all experts on traveling the country and knew about all the hidden gems. Im also interested in maybe visiting/ staying in a few vol sites while out there. So please pass this along to any and all you think appropriate and shoot me an email with any comments jjspindler at yahoo dot com. Also, if you or any other PCVs need or want anything from the states let me know and ill try to bring it with me.

Jason
