I’m Back in Bangkok

I’m back in Bangkok. My marathon return trip included a car ride, a taxi trip, a four-hour Amtrak ride, 21 hours of flights aboard Singapore Airlines, and nine hours of waiting for planes in airports that steadily improved as I journeyed east: JFK, Frankfurt, and then Singapore.

I may write more, in future dispatches, about my month at home in the US. But for now, let me just say to the friends, family, and colleagues I saw: ole uncle Newley is happy to have caught up with you.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got some eating to do. First up, I shall attempt to consume my body weight in krapow moo with extra fish sauce. I’ve really missed the food here in Bangkok.
