three countries in three days and some seriously bad news...

after a manic two weeks in myanmar we had a whirl wind trip back to bangkok before our overnight train to laos. after touching down and getting reconnected with the communication realm in thailand, we got the horrible news that my aunty jan had passed away unexpectedly in new zealand. we soon found the truth in the notion that bad things happen in three's, as days later i was diagnosed with dengue fever and kurts grandma passed away back in australia. in low spirits we had to spend a week and a half in laos's capital, vientiane while i recovered from my illness; which rendered me useless for a while. we are now back to our travels and hope that all's as well as can be back home with our families. much love at this difficult time...
