It feels like I’ve been away in Thailand for a month! It has been fun to meet all the relatives and got a chance to spend time with one of my best childhood friends. We visited her sugarcane plantation, picked longan fruit from her backyard, and visited historic parks. I’m very impressed that she takes care of the plantation all by herself! Unfortunately, we did only spend one day at the beach, so next time we’re planning to go directly to one of the islands.
