Under the Weather

It’s been an uneventful day. I had a sore throat in the night and decided to stay close to the hotel and rest. I’m only two days into my trip with two weeks to go, it’s better not to wear myself down. I’m already feeling better. My throat is not painful, just scratchy.

I did take a little walk earlier in the day, looking for an old friend who runs a corner coffee cart. I met him years ago when he used to drive me around in his tuk-tuk. I had an idea where his cart was located and I found him. Sarom and his wife were happy to see me as was I to see them! He offered me free coffee, but I paid him with a little extra—his cart was busy with some customers but he took time to sit down with me and talk. I asked about his family and how they fared during COVID. He said they all made it through fine, but his business suffered. It’s a shame the world governments did that to good people.

Oh, by the way. I had scrambled eggs and bacon at the hotel this morning. The chef came out and asked me if there was anything else I would like. I said “Steak sounds good.” He soon appeared with a nice cut of beef.

The perfect sized steak for breakfast.

My room is being cleaned so I’m outside people watching. It’s a nice cool and breezy day and the traffic seems more orderly than usual.

Tomorrow Dr. Tom Johnson and I are meeting to plan the week’s Bible studies and some travel we will be doing. More on that later.

I was just about to hit “Publish” on this post when my friend, Kosarl drove by and saw me. He’s such a good guy and we enjoyed talking for about 30 minutes.

Kosarl saw me and stopped to talk!

That’s all for today.

  1. It sounds like it was just the type of day you needed. The connections and relationships you have or are making bring glory to God. I pray for continued strength and good health.
    Thanks for sharing. I love the experiences of other cultures.
