Off Week...(updated 10/27)

So this week we've had a holiday from our language studies to celebrate a National Holiday with our friends.

Can you pick out the whities in this picture? Anthony was pumped about getting to show off his white chest and white ankles (can't see it in this picture, but his outfit is a bit short as he borrowed it from Abang...and it was purple) This is Abang's family and we spent the better portion of Tuesday (8am-7pm) going from house to house in the neighborhood with them. At every house we ate...and you change houses every 15 minutes or so- you do the math.

We learned the traditional greeting for this holiday...this is Abang and his family carrying out that tradition...



This is Abang and Anthony letting the heat and their full tummies have their way.

Wednesday we got a few errands done but had a little down time.

Yeah, we thought you'd want to see that too.

Thursday we hung out with our boss's family and a few other whities. The mall we went to downtown has a rollercoaster in it- but, incredibly, we didn't ride it. Turns out its part of a small theme park in the mall and we decided to go back another day so we could have time for all the action. Here's a little som'n som'n to keep you all satisfied until the day we make it back there.

We also saw the movie "Open Season." While we think Disney and Pixar make much better movies than Dreamworks (ie- put "Madagascar" up against "Finding Nemo" and the little clownfish from the reef with his gimpy fin will come out on top any day). BUT we watched the movie in an IMAX theater and it was 3-D. Check this action out.

And then today I went out with the girls for a traditional Thai foot massage....

Here's me and Tanya in anticipation of our hour of foot-rubbin' heaven (for about $15 US)

Can't wait to read your blog cause I miss you and cause they're so interesting/funny/ enlightening. Commenting makes me feel like I'm talking to you and it must make you feel the same especially being so far away from home and friends. Love, Mammalou

Hey guys! It looks like you two have WAY too much time on your hands!!! :) I love getting updates from you two..they are always entertaining, and always make me smile!!! Just a lil suggestion the next time you get bored Anthony you should try putting your mattress (sheetless) on the stairs and you will have a sweet slide! Well not much is new here..Florida is still seasonless...its still 90 degrees most days. Which is just RIDICULOUS!!!! Hope everything continues to be as crazy and exciting for you two...ya know so that the great stories will keep comin!! J/K Love you guys!! You are in my thoughts daily! Tamara
