Thailand Happy Birthday Lek
March 11, 2009
Dear Family and Friends,
I couldn't believe it! Amazing!! It's been four years since that big birthday party for my friend Lek!!! *
I met Lek in Nang Rong where she worked as an Optician. Now she's thirty-four and has been promoted to Branch Manager at a very busy Top Charoen Optical branch in Ayutthaya.
We don't see each other very often so I decided to take the short bus trip up to Ayutthaya to bring her a present and to have dinner.
But first, despite the afternoon heat and my mild medical infirmities at the moment, I hitched up my camera bag and sped away on the back of a motorcycle taxi to explore the ancient wats (temples).
