No fucking way

finally landed in a place that despite the torrential rain, has electricity and an ok wifi connection. But guess what ? Laptop didn't survive the flood. I am at the 9 DAY FASTING retreat. My mom suggested I dry it out with rice  and I'm like what rice? There is no food here. nobody eating around these parts. can i dry it out with a colema board? oh well. still happy. pretty hungry though. this fasting is not boding well with my emotional eating.

Wow, your patience has been tested and yet you find time to write us which means you are incredible. Hope you get food soon though.

No food? OMG. Sounds like hell. At least you were able to post. Glad to see you are okay and still having an amazing adventure

Man, stay off a link for a couple of months and a lot of - actual - shit can happen!

Just got all caught up on the posts and you have obviously been a very, very busy gal. Cows, elephants, excrement, disease, pestilence, hospitals, natural disasters, fasting(!)? Sweet creeping mother of Christ!

I notice you were in Samui. Was there on Lamai Beach maybe 20 years ago, before there was an airport, and it was amazing. Hope it's not totally overrun yet. Actually saw armadillos sold for meat on the street there - will never get that image out of my head. As I recall, the "mushroom" omelettes were, um, mind-bending.

The writing is great, by the way and I'm very proud of you and what you're doing; life, as you well know, is not a dress rehearsal.

I'll try to check in with more regularity in future. Don't want to find out you've discovered a way to travel to another planet until it's too late.

Oh, the "Tell It To Me Like I'm 5" thing is brilliant. I'll buy that book! Make sure you find time to write it. Can't wait to hear what you'll break your fast with...
