At the swimming pool

We've been hanging out at the pool lately. The temperature is in the 90s, but we have the whole pool to ourselves.

Where's everyone else?
Flipper walk, whirl pool, and diving demonstrations seen here:

Night bazaar

The night bazaar here is crowded with color and noise and tourists and a 'cheap cheap' chaos of stuff.

These are some of the stands and shops.

This is the man who will make you a banana pancake. Do you want raisins with that?

I like the pretty lights.

These are flowers made out of soap.

And this is the man who makes them.

I like all the pretty color of the bazaar.

Did you see anything you liked? This is one of the ladies you'll have to bargain with to get what you want.

A day out

We went out on the town for the day. To see the markets. To smell the markets.

If you don't know what you're looking for...
then I can't really help you either.

Was it an elephant teapot?

Maybe Batman can help you.

Elephant parking?

Is this where you park your elephant?

We didn't have one.

We stopped here for a quick look at a tea plantation. There wasn't much to see.

What we do

This is how I've been spending a lot of my time:
Taking pictures

Playing cards.

Playing with new friends.
Playing legos.

We go to the playground.

And just hang around.

An interesting economics article

There is an article I read about spending money.
It says two interesting things to me:
One: How does Ebenezer Scrooge fit in with this idea?
And two: How about good and bad economies? Right now people say in polls they're happy, but the economy is bad. Does that mean that during years of "good" economy people are more sad? Sad people means a good economy?

Cracked head

Daniel was tree climbing. It wasn't a very strong tree and the branch broke. He fell about eight feet to the concrete below. He was taken to the hospital where he got 10 stitches for the two different cuts on his head. Poor kid.
He has said that he learned an important lesson about consequences.

This is a picture of him with his cracked head and the puddle of

And this is a video of Daniel himself pointing out the site of The Incident.
