Just a quick note to say two things:
First, I just bought my plane ticket to Australia a few days ago, via two weeks in Thailand and Laos. Well, I fly into and out of Bangkok (that's LAX-> Bangkok and then Bangkok -> Perth) visa Seoul on the way there and Kuala Lumpur on the way back. Sweet! I am excited to have 11 hour layovers at each of my partway airports, actually, because I'm hoping that means I can leave the airport which means I get the BEST souvenirs of all time: passport stamps for funky countries.
Second, here's the third chapter for The Waves Above.
