But a real highlight has been the kids - they're just gorgeous! If I wasn't on HRT I'd seriously be contemplating number five.
Check out this little chicken. Her name is Faaaaaar (probably not, but that's what it sounded like). She was in a restaurant (I use that term loosely) on Soi 38 in Bangkok - where we'd settled ourselves as our duo, Brodie and Ash, manned the street cart over the road. She is looking very apprehensively at me and rightly so because when I said to her mother how gorgeous her daughter is, she jokingly said - via the interpreter - would I like to keep her? Funny for all of us but very disconcerting when you're not yet three. I used to say similar things when my kids were little - but I hope they were clear I was kidding.
Anyway, clearly Faaaaaaar warmed up a bit because she did sit on my knee for a short stint - but as directed by her mum.

And check out these Hmong girls - they are adorable! I posted a picture on Facebook and my friend Toni thought I should bring them home and we could have one each! Made even more appealing because not only are they beautiful, but they were just so friendly and a little bit cheeky as well. We first encountered the Hmong people in Laos about 18 months ago - and you can read all about their crazy courtship customs here.

The frogs we've encountered have not been so cute. I don't mind a critter but when Mandy and I tried to wrangle this little guy for a photo, he decided to try and make a leap for it taking us both by surprise. Not pretty - and I'm not talking about the frog!!!!

PS: Yes - no proofing again - sorry.
