I got a new watch yesterday. I have been looking at it for some time now. I like the features of this watch where if you touch the button on the side and then you touch the face at various points you access the features of the watch such as altimeter, barimetric, compass, chrono, thermo and alarm. Reviews are hit and miss on amazon.com. I decided I just could not find anything else I liked and picked it up. One warning I will have to look at is that folks say not to send it through the metal detector too many times in the airport, which is fine as normally you have to take it off and put it into a bowl that you get on the other side.

My favorite watch is still the Corum my wife bought me for Christmas/birthday.
Given the cash, the next watch would be either a Panerai or another Corum.

Well things are coming along, albeit slowly. All I am waiting for is some paperwork and then I can book my tickets. Only bad thing is that they are gonna cost a pretty penny being so last minute. Give me another week and I will be taking picks in Laos for you all and will post them at the earliest convenience. Also based on when and if I have internet. :-)

Cheers all!!!

This picture is for Mrs. Pants. This is a picture of Radju, the gentleman that works for us around the house. Radju is from Bangladesh. He is such a great help seeing as the house is so big. He helps also keep the cars clean with all the dust we get swirling around here.

Here are two carpets Heather and I have picked up here for our future home in some state or another.

Well folks the time has come to move back home. Back to Laos. I have been given the opportunity and this time we are not passing it up. We have turned down a few times opportunities in Cambodia due to bad timing or due to commitments. This time we have nothing to stop us.
I have accepted a position as a Project Manager and will be based out of Vientiane. I am off in a matter of weeks and Heather will be a few months behind me. We will have a nice house with a spare room. So anyone interested should take full advantage. Actually the houses, cost to size ratio, are incredible.
Heather will be taking the time to finish off her degree and start on a masters. She also will take some time to get involved with a local group or two and do some volunteering.
Well thats all the news thats fit to print. Cheers all and keep in touch.
