The four week cruise is over... kind of a whirlwind way to see Southeast Asia... experience a different culture... (or lots of different cultures)... meet all kinds of people, eat great food, see wonderful sights and on an on. Although we knew internet would be difficult, we really didn't think it would be as hard as it was. Apparently it's not the lack of technology (afterall, we were in countries that produce high tech electronics for everything!) but rather the gov't restrictions or regulations or whatever they do to keep ordinary folks like us from having access.
I am happy to write that we went geocaching in Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Viet Nam, Hong Kong and Singapore... we just couldn't get internet in China so had no success there.
Of course I took hundreds (probably thousands) of photos... but it will be a few days before I post any as my thoughts are too tired to even think about organizing anything.
Tomorrow we fly out of Singapore, back to Tokyo... then on to Honolulu. I think we'll be there until Wednesday, then fly to Los Angeles. We'll be there a couple of days then board another cruise ship and sail along the Mexican Riviera for 1 week. That's another genealogy cruise - the software company that Bill has used for years sponsors the conference aboard this ship.
It's almost 6pm and we have to head to the airport at 3am, so this will be brief... I've missed my family and friends... and really have missed my blogging friends and catching up with their lives. It will take me a while to catch up... and it will be 2 more weeks before we head back to Texas and our motorhome.... but I'll catch up eventually.
Thought y'all might like this...
Yep! That's me and Bill... taking an elephant ride in Thailand.
Hope this finds you all well and healthy... I've missed you.
That's All For Today!
