Scorpions!

Location: Thai Countryside, Thailand

Winding down our time in Thailand, we experience the country life...fishing for dinner, eating with the local folks, and avoiding deadly insects.

These guys see John (he doesn't look like a local) and bring him over a snack-rice and coconut milk wrapped in banana leaves.

Jennifer makes friends quickly with this group at the temple playground. They are "Ling" (monkeys!)

Jennifer recovers from some casual oral surgery. On a visit to this elementary school, this teacher notices Jennifer's perennially loose tooth (the one that will not come out.) "Not beautiful" she says as she grabs a wad of cotton and yanks it out. P.S. The tooth fairy knows the way to Thailand

A Thai home-photos of dead people on the right (and perhaps some ashes) and living people on the right (including the king.) Common theme to this montage: respect.

This scorpion (Timmy says it is a chameleon scorpion) was found near the school and is about 4 inches long. After this we took to shaking out our shoes before putting them on...

Januk, Pom's uncle, attended high school in the mid west and then fought for Thailand in Vietnam. He was so excited to speak English with us and he and John became fast friends.

Fishing for dinner in the Moon River. We're not sure what the kid in the scuba mask is all about but it's all Sanuk, Sanuk (Fun, fun!)

One of our missions was to teach the Sompoi kids the art of the High Five!

Wek, who teaches Thai all day (in his beautiful classroom) and then teaches Timmy and Chris and John to play a mean game of table tennis in the afternoon.

After a day of fishing, we cook dinner over the fire. Recipe: spear fish alive with a stick you cut from a nearby mango tree and stick in the coals.
