It was inevitable. Vacation had to come to an end, sand had to be shaken out of our shoes, and my parents had to go back home. I did mention more than once that Thailand is a very popular place to retire...

Our last few days were spent in the beautiful river town of Kanchanaburi, about 3 hours from Bangkok. We did a few touristy things like the tiger temple and Erawan falls. The tiger temple sounded like a good idea: a refuge where monks have taken in orphaned tigers and raised them to be somewhat tame. Was a bit too contrived for me, plus Sojo kept talking about how funky the whole place smelled, and we were outside in the wild. Whoa! I did manage to get another great tattoo photo of a monk. The tattoos here are so intricate and often done with a piece of sharpened bamboo.

We've a few days left with Matt and Cathy before more goodbyes. Soaking up the time together until then.

Missing you all and feeling oh so torn between two places.

Thanks for the memories
