12 hours to go

We are packed.

We visited the Sunset Bar for the last time (and got parting gifts from the owner...more Beer Lao glasses) and had a lovely last L'opera lunch (well, dinner actually, but lunch was more alliterative).

We've said goodbye to most people. A few others will see us off at the airport tomorrow.

8:00 am car to the airport. 10:20 am flight to Bangkok.

Pause for Dr. appointments and various other things, such as dinner with Kate and Orestes while spending two nights in Bangkok...

6:40 am flight from Bangkok on Friday arriving late afternoon Friday in Albany.

By the way, what is the cell service that had the ads with Catherine Zeta Jones a few years back. I heard tell that their pre-paid service is pretty good. Anyone have any other suggestions for pre-paid cell service I'd be glad to hear them. 6 months in the US doesn't make for a very affordable cell service contract, and we'll be bringing home fancy tri-band phones from Bangkok.

Ms. Zeta Jones uses T-Mobile.

Dear Katherine, Phil and Jack,
Thanks for entertaining me with your tales of life on the Mekong.

I'm leaving Laos today after a wonderful two week vacation (wish it could have been longer) and your blog was a wonderful little research tool.

All the best for your life in the States, Kiev and beyond!

We've found Virgin Mobile fairly affordable, though I have no idea how they go about getting themselves into your cell phone...
