Getting closer



Siem Reap, Cambodia

We got up this morning before 4am to catch a flight between Phuket and Siem Reap. Spending the day recovering by the pool and wandering around a bit before we head to the main event tomorrow: Angkor Wat!

Fun to look at, boring to eat



Chumpon, Thailand
Friday, November 17, 2017

Today we drove into the city of Chumpon because Frank was on a quest for mangosteens. But, alas, they were not to be found. Pictured here are the dragon fruit we did find: pretty to look at, but truly not very interesting at all to eat.

Transit bus



Incheon Airport, South Korea
Saturday, November 11, 2017

On the bus to our transit hotel for the night. (The Golden Tulip!) I had no idea busses interiors could be so crazy. What a light show!

Break time



Incheon Airport, South Korea
Saturday, November 11, 2017

While waiting for our transit hotel here in Incheon, A discovered the Airport Cleaning Robot,  who, according to the sign, was "on break." Recharging, so to speak. We were only disappointed that we didn't get to see it in action...

Work party

Tukwila, Washington
Saturday, September 23, 2017

Spent a beautiful fall day working on a service project with some students from our department. Met interesting people, re-learned a bunch of power tools, built a handrail, ate some good snacks, admired the homeowner's garden, and enjoyed the weather. Someone said, "Thanks for giving up your Saturday for this project." What did I give up? It all felt like a GIFT to me.

Work PARTY, indeed.

Kubota Garden on a grayish day

Seattle, Washington
Thursday, September 7, 2017

Am proud to report that I bicycled all the way to Kubota Garden from the Central District today. Had a bit of trouble following the Google map on my phone but made it, finally. Fall is just coming to Kubota Garden--still mostly green with some gorgeous fall flowers, too. Lovely.

Blueberry peppers

Seattle, Washington
Wednesday, September 6, 2017

Another Wednesday, another CSA delivery. This time Blueberry Peppers were the item I'd never seen (or heard) of before. Kind of a lot of work to cut up since they're so small, but they're pretty and just faintly spicy.
