Ross in Thailand
March 24, 2003
How did everyone's March break go?? I heard there were a few good
parties, and a few good hockey games! And well, a few not so good
hockey games. I guess you're lucky i wasnt there to boo you. Just
kidding! I'm actually missing hockey over here!! They don't even
have field hockey.
Once again, I have been up to nothing interesting!! I babysit a few
kids around here. So i'm spending most of my time hanging out with 7
year olds! They crack me up though. We went to a pool 15 minutes
out of Songkla last week. The water was so warm compared to the
Samilla pool!! They use salt water in the pool. It was pretty
neat. Not many people went there either!! They're all at the
beach, but i'm staying clear of the beach for now. They have these neon blue
jelly fish called man of wars that are supposed to hurt really bad when you
get stung by them, and the tentacles stick to your skin. So we had all
of the kids at Samilla pool yesterday. It was kind of fun. We all got a
little sunburnt though. You'd think after all this tanning we'd stop
Worse than getting sunburnt is the mosquitoes!! I have over 20 bites on
each of my legs. They look like huge welts. They honestly
swelled up to the size of the bumps you get after being shot with a
paintball. Not only do they look gross, they itch like crazy.
I'm pretty thankful at this point that there is no malaria in this part of
Thailand!! We're on the look out for bugspray! I'd even take
raid at this point!
How is the war situation over in Canada?? We stay tuned to bbc most of
the time. But we're all dying for some Canadian news. We check
in on CNN sometimes to see what the Americans are saying. I'm glad
Canada still hasn't gotten involved!! My friends and i would have done
all that protesting for nothing! Just kidding. I've been getting
a lot of questions about Thailand's involvement in the war. Basically
they have none. They don't want to get involved with it and are staying
neutral. Kind of like Canada. Which is good news for me!!
Anyway, we're going to go on vacation here one of these days, so i might
have something interesting to write about that?
ps. Mr. macclure, i saw your travel spot and noticed you didn't include
your trip to Thailand!
Glad to see you enjoyed your march break! I was pretty happy to just talk to my friends
at normal hours of the day! I noticed on the
Morell website they have a message board
and i was wondering why souris doesnt have one!!
