Closing Ceremonies and other points of departure





I watched the closing ceremonies in bits and pieces in the town of Lijiang, first in a tiny, delicious little Chinese Muslim restaurant where Sarah and I ate delicious mutton stew, eggplant, and greens and sat and watched the young 7 year old waitress and her very old, adorable grandmother the cook both attend, attentively, to the barely perceptible image on their tv screen... Then, as we walked through the twisty, touristy streets of trinket-selling booths of old town, we watched locals watching the ceremonies in virtually every stand that had a tv...
So, ceremonies closed, I have taken to the air, land, and water, to get away and think about this all for a little while in southern Thailand, specifically Ko Ya Kai, an island off of the island of Phuket... a place mostly without internet... for now.
