Leaving Luang Prubang

What a place. We will be back. 

Last night included another extraordinary evening at Big Brother Mouse. These young men (and a few young women) are so hungry to learn. After two hours of conversation and a few mini gammar lessons they asked for (adverbs, compound/complex sentence difference, and adjective placement), I was saying goodbye and ended with, “You have been so inspirational to me.” 

Immediately, they all pulled out their notebooks and pens that had been stashed away for the evening, and said, “Could you spell ‘inspirational’ and tell us what it means?” 

I mean…really. Amazing.

What we’ll remember




We’re headed to Beijing via Bangkok. It’s May 7th here, and I’m thinking of my wonderful friend, Cathy, on her birthday. Hope it’s a good day for everyone.
