Web Time Wasters

It’s been a lovely week here at The Good Ship Yes and Yes – in the race the cross the boarder into Laos I was beaten by a large black goat with a bell around it’s neck.  I saw some waterfalls, some temples, got a $5 massage, ate lots of baguettes and did not eat any frogs, maggots or crickets.  Tomorrow I take one bus and two planes to Kuala Lampur where I’m interning with the Malaysian edition of CLEO!
