We had a brief visit from family (Tom’s cousin) over the weekend. It was so fun to see them. I told Michelle that she made me miss the whole family! Here they are having some curry and roti at an old hole-in-the-wall restaurant on the river in Bangkok.
Anyway, backing up to the beginning of their visit, they spent some time in the city on Friday where Tom went to teach a class. They visited a mall and a shrine to get a taste of the city and then we went out all together near our neighborhood for a big Thai seafood dinner….whole fried fish, shrimp curry, shrimp cakes, spicey fruit salad (lime chilis, fish sauce, and sugar), cashew chicken, etc. It was a fun night of catching up, even though traffic was a bit awful. We brought the songtaew (bench truck) home and strolled back through our neighborhood.

Tom took them to the overnight train after our big day. It was a short two days, but really good to be with family again and to spend time catching up with each other and exploring the city. You’re in our prayers, Greg and Michelle!
