Finally cut through all the red tape and am my way to Laos to join my wife and baby son, Mapanoy.

I've been living in Taiwan since 1981 (was 21 at the time), acquired Chinese (I am a "white" Chinese) citizenship and I admit to feeling a bit strange about leaving but at the same time I am excited to start all over in Laos. At least my Mandarin Chinese won't go to waste as China's only a bus ride away and I've made some Chinese friends in Vientiane.

It's back to school again! I've hired a Lao language tutor. Some of my friends on SZ know that I enjoy studying languages and one can never speak enough of them IMHO.

Can't wait to give alms to the monks every morning and visit them at the temple.

My buddies can expect a postcard although those in the US will have to wait several weeks before receiving theirs (remember last time?) but that's out of my hands. Just be patient.

Now hoping that I make it to Laos in one piece. My time on SZ might diminish somewhat but I'll still be around (sorry about that: i mean, still being around).

Great news to be reunited with your family. I enjoyed conversation on the infamous "Fran" forum for a while too - those were fun times.

Keep in touch.
