  • It's been a strange day. First of all, it's Thanksgiving and I'm nearly 10,000 miles away from my home and family. I'm okay though -- because it just feels like a regular Thursday. I'm not surrounded by my family, cooking and bustling about and it's about 85 degrees so it truly doesn't feel like Thanksgiving. We are going into Bangkok tomorrow to buy our bus tickets for our Christmas vacation, as well as to have our "Mexican Thanksgiving." I can't wait to taste the guacamole.
