We are here in a little internet cafe in Chaing Mai, Thailand!!! We have had such amazing adventures the past week and feel so blessed! We leave for India tomorrow. We don't have a card reader to upload our own pictures so I stole some off the internet so you get a little taste of what we have been up to. It has been a dream and we are so happy and safe and sound.

After 40 hours of traveling (seriously) we spent 2 days at an incredible, stunningly gorgeous tropical paradise called Railay beach. We took two long boats to get there. It is super secluded and remote and this picture doesn't do it a smidgen of justice. We climbed around in the mountains, explored the jungle, relaxed on the beach and watched the sunset, ate awesome food in little bungalows in the trees, slept in a moldy room with two beds pushed together, made a good friend from Germany/Australia, kayaked out by the big rock formations jutting out of the sea, etc. You know, like you do.

Then we flew up to Chaing Mai and in the last three days we have had so many adventures including riding motorcyle scooters up the mountain to the Wat Doi Suthep, eating at a HUGE buffet surrounded in Thai people, riding elephants and trekking in the jungle, floating down the river on a bamboo raft, eating AMAZING FOOD, and soaking in bustling markets (or stopping for a bit to get a foot massage for 2 dollars). We love it here. Pure magic.

Here's the market we just spent 5 hours at trying all kinds of food and buying pretty, cheap things. (below)

We love and miss you all back home. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. We are so excited to get to India and start working with Rising Star. We are so blessed. Life is beautiful!!!
