Merry Christmas, everybody - nice and late!:)I had a good, if not very Christmasy one. Got up early, made another delectable (not!) rice and curry breakfast. Some of my family left early to take some patients to the hospital in the refugee camp. Took care of a few patients. Did several motorbike trips into Mesolite for bags of rice and baby clothes for people who didn't have any. Went to pick up my sister in Methawa (about 20 minutes away). Did some Christmas shopping at a few little shops and used the excuse of the day to celebrate with ice cream with Em. Went down to the creek to rinse out laundry and while at it sang Christmas carols under the blazing sun (90 degrees indoors!). Came back up only to debate with the guys over the banana cake that'd be gotten up in Chiang Mai for a treat. We must have spent the next 20 minutes discussing how to divide it.:) And so forth, so on... Was a good day! But if or when I get back to the States I will have a Christmas, even if in July!:)
