Stations on my TV are a hoot. Top Cat and Quick Draw McGraw broadcast in Lao on the Vientiane station. One Thai station has a continuous loop of a gay guy in tight white shorts and a tight yellow T-shirt aerobidancing. The only English news stations are Fox, al Jazeera, and (sometimes in English) CCTV--China. al Jazeera is quite good, Fox is, well......Fox, and the Chinese tell you what they want you to hear and believe (hey....kinda like Fox!)
We are building a brick house to grow mushrooms--they cannot germinate in the high summer heat. We are making bricks as the pics below will attest. Jessica (a volunteer from Colorado) and I ciphered we will need about 1700 bricks--we can make 100 a day. Rice hulls, sand, and clay are mixed, then poured into forms to set up and dry for 5 days.
My friend Rudy--who wired $175 from his bank account in Bangkok to the motorcycle fund--got a brick inscribed with his name.
