Yikes the water is everywhere!....

Boy am I tired. It's 11:28 pm Tuesday night. This is Marie reporting live in the crowded city of Chaing Mai...

ok anyways....what did I do today? I spent alot of time at the Central Airport Plaza, this big mall. I watched "The Lady in the Water" movie....for girls I'd say watch it...it was rather interesting. Not as freaky as some of the other M. Night Shalayamain (whatever his name is).

I was able to purchase most of the stuff I had on the list for the kids and staff. Yeah! It will almost be like Christmas when I bring them home all these goodies!

I went to pick up the stuff from the lovely Indian guys, the tailors today. My WORD! I had to drive through a mini river to get there! Their road was flooded. For goodness sakes! They had sand bags lined up in front of their store.... When I got there I had to wade into the water and than find the little boards they had over the gutter so I wouldn't go even deeper in the water.

It was fun...and coming back in a tuk tuk, 3 wheeled thingy it was like being in a motor boat the way the water was splashing up away from the vehicle. CRazy!

Hey Marie, good to hear from you. If you go back to those "Indian" brothers, tell them that I went to India before. Boy, its hot here. I guess, on the heat index it's been getting in the 100s. Still looking for a car:-), love you sis, keep at it. Oh, if you have time, send me that "better" pic of me.

hi Marie. It was nice to talk to you this evening. It must have been quite an experience to deal with all that water. Glad you enjoyed your little restaurant experience. Maybe that was the earlier blog. That is pretty incredible to be able to order something and then pick it up in 24 hours. Glad you found some good taylors. You are doing a great job and I am proud of you. Love, Mom
