Back in the U.S.A.

Kathy and I arrived in Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday, the 13th.  We are now in Montgomery, Alabama with our dear friend, Lecia. This morning we watched 13th,  Ava DuVernay’s study of the links between slavery and the US penal system.  This documentary was sobering and heartbreaking.  I decided to take a walk and shake of some of the sadness I was feeling. Lecia’s Montgomery neighborhood is beautiful and historic. Enjoy these pictures but do make time to watch 13th. You may need your own walk after.

    1. Hey Megan! Yes we are planning a long road trip through the National Parks. We plan to be around for about a year. We also plan to visit Mexico and Canada. Thanks for following.

      1. That’s great! My partner and I will be going to Thailand in the Spring, was hoping we’d catch up with you ladies, but you will be here still … perhaps on our next visit to Thailand you will have returned.
        If you can make any helpful suggestions for us while there, we would really appreciate it! We will be there for 2 weeks.
        Thanks! Enjoy!

      2. Hey Megan, So Thailand is in mourning because the only King it has had for 70 years just died a couple weeks ago. The idea is it will grieve for one entire year. That said, I suspect that by the Spring things will be more normal than they are now. Keep an eye on the news especially if you were planning to visit the southern area. We spent most of our time in Northern Thailand, Chiang Mai specifically. We love it there and now think of it as a second home. One thing we loved was the floating market. Try to have your hotel arrange it there is a different price for every person so we try not to worry too much about getting the best prices. If you like Buddhist temples and ornate decor you will truly enjoy the Grand Palace if it’s open. Near there are many interesting museums. Bangkok is a good walking town. Lots of delicious street food. Make sure to bargain for everything. DO NOT TRUST WHAT THE DRIVERS TELL YOU. Ask at your hotel if things are open. It is fine to get a tuktuk, just know that they will try to talk you into things and overcharge you. Taxis are a bit more trustworthy, but don’t take there word either.
