Christmas Cards, Kids and a Little Curiosity in the New Year

As Christmas and the new year approaches, we’re sending holiday wishes your way…and getting a little help from our friends.

Christmas in Thailand

As for us, we’re enjoying Christmas with a good friend who lives on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand. We’ve exchanged snow for monsoon rains and reindeer for chirping geckos.

Embracing the goofy, we also picked up some classy flashing Santa hats for a motorbike ride across the island today. Loved the surprised looks and laughs of locals.

    @inka: On the side of the island where we are staying (where there are very few expats or tourists), we got endless looks and laughs. On the side of the island with the tourists…everyone, particularly the Thai staff, were all wearing them! Quite a contrast. Good idea to give them to the kids. That would have been fun. As it was, we were racing across the island to give them to a good friend who had been working for the past 17 days straight. She needed a break…and a hat.

    @Lola: Thanks. We’re very much looking forward to 2011. All the best to you!
