- Rain -- and lots of it! You might remember the story I posted about the package that made it from Troutdale to Austin and back to Troutdale in just five days... Why it was returned to sender remains a mystery as it arrived today and Posted by Dano8 in Austin is the Place to Be! | Jul 2, 2010
- Weedy is home; USPS messes upWell, Weedy is now home. My nephew -- also known as the world's greatest nine-year old -- now has a pet cockatiel. Going to the pet store the last couple days was interesting. Apparently you decided which Posted by Dano8 in Austin is the Place to Be! | Jun 30, 2010
- Arrival!It's so nice to be back in Austin. The flights were wonderful. I was a bit concerned about changing airlines -- from U.S. Airways to Frontier -- but now I wish I had made the change years ago. Comfy Posted by Dano8 in Austin is the Place to Be! | Jun 29, 2010

- Hsipaw: Shan State, BurmaWe are finally on our own here in the small town of Hispaw, which is modestly cooler than sweltering Yangon and Mandalay. It has been wonderful to meet and greet the relatives of our students, but everyone Posted by jonshapiro in Vagabonding at 60 | May 20, 2010
- The Road to MandalayWe took the overnight bus to Mandalay. The long and COLD bus. As Mark Twain said about San Francisco in the summer, I was never as cold as in an ac bus here in the tropics. Posted by jonshapiro in Vagabonding at 60 | May 9, 2010
