On Sunday and Monday I also had the opportunity to see Jessica and spend a little bit of time with her! The last time I saw her was January 2006 and now she’s back to stay in Thailand! I’m so thankful that she’s here – she’s such a good friend. We were both in YWAM together years and years ago. Now, she’s studying Thai in Lopburi, living in my old house, in my old room! Crazy!
Another goodbye I had to say on the weekend was to my friend Claire (pictured below on the right; Caroline’s on the left). Caroline (also a close friend), Claire and I hung out on Sunday night and said goodbye on Monday when I flew up to Chiang Mai. She flew out of Bangkok early this morning, heading back to Northern Ireland. Claire and I became friends while we both studied Thai in Lopburi, and I learned all sorts of interesting vocabulary from her – my favourite being ‘bush’, which is a hamburger! [Note: Apparently this definition in my mind developed from what we now know was miscommunication/typo… 🙂 So as Claire warned in her comment below, DON’T go ordering a “bush” in N.Ireland unless you are at a plant nursery. My apologies. :)] I think it’ll be a few years until I see her again. Come back soon Claire!!
