Happy New Year

This is the first opportunity I have had to post since coming on vacation - I've been in Southeast Asia since December 15th, first in Bangkok, then Malaysia, and then back to Southern Thailand again. I spent last night (New Year's Eve) on the beach here in Phuket where revellers were celebrating by firing off anything they could get their hands on - which makes for a great show. At the appointed time, all the yachts out on the Andaman sea blasted their horns and everyone grabbed their cans of Singha and whoever they brung and toasted in 2007. A much happier scene than two years before when this very beach was still reeling from the effects of the great Tsunami. Happier days are back again, it seems. May 2007 be a happy one for you too.
