Bye Bye Mae Sot, Hello Penang
May 29, 2011 - Penang, Malaysia
Any thoughts of leaving Mae Sot as quietly as I arrived there were quickly dismissed as fate transpired to throw all of my friends in my path to say goodbye before I left. I hate goodbyes. I spent my last day in the clinic saying goodbye to the fantastic medics who'd helped me in my time- following the example of grateful patients I'd bought food for them all as a thank you, which went down well, and I gave Mae Soe a pearl necklace as a special thank you for her bike which saved me almost...

Well, I haven't updated in a long time, but that's becuase nothing that's exciting to "most people" has been going on. Things that have been exciting to us have been going on, like God working miracles in our life, but those aren't really photographable things anyway, and I am of the opinion that blogs must have pictures.
