Unfavorable Conditions…

Yesterday I was returning from Bangkok to Phnom Penh and ended up on the last flight out of Bangkok.  I got in really late and then found my e-mail folder was corrupted.  The meetings were good but the rest of the day sure didn’t go my way.  Today, though, I’m back with a repeat of a too-sad posting.

Still Aachh…..

I’m still having lots of trouble getting connected to the Internet at the Bangkok Christian Guest House.  It’s a nice facility with lots of positive features but Internet access isn’t one of them.  I’ll be back in Phnom Penh tomorrow evening but until then here is a picture from the sidewalk-food-stall scene along many of the major footpaths in the city.


I’m on the road again, this time in Bangkok for a Maryknoll meeting, and the guest house we use has a very weak wi-fi system.  There was no possibility of getting on last night but I hope to update things Tuesday night Bangkok time.

Getting Ready for a Trip

These are some of young deaf men participating in our DDP job training to become barbers.  This morning I dropped in for a quick trim of my beard as I prepare to head to Australia to speak to donors about Caritas Australia who gives money to the Deaf Development Programme.  That’s the name on the shirts of the guys on the left and on the right.  I leave in about an hour and will return to Phnom Penh on 2 March.
