It’s Dragon Boat Festival Holiday here in China, and we’re in Phuket, Thailand through Monday. I didn’t think it could get much hotter, but woooooeeeee is Thailand a beast!! I got a bit of heat stroke from being out in the sun too long yesterday. Good thing there are beaches and lots of coconut drinks and fruit stands everywhere.
The next few weeks are going to be a bit crazy. We’re racing in for Team USA in Guangzhou’s Dragon Boat races next week, have a few parties and dinners to attend and plan, and have a lot of paperwork to fill and stuff to get done before we leave post in three-and-a-half weeks. Oh yeah, and we have to pack up all our stuff, too. That’s not stressful or anything.
For this weekend, though, I’m enjoying this last trip out of Guangzhou. Coincidentally, our first trip out of Guangzhou was New Years’ Eve, to Phuket, in December 2010. Back to the same place we started.
It’s a nice way to round out our travels.
