Mixed-Up Pictures and Thoughts.

It hasn't been a stressful or busy week as the weeks in the past, but there hasn't been a moment to sit down and post anything. I can't remember what, when or details of anything so this will be one mixed up post. I do have pictures and thought to share though.

First, let me share a couple of observations . . .

1. It's interesting to us to note that for whatever reason, our fingernails are growing faster here than at home. I don't know if it's the climate, the altitude, the latitude, age, or a combination of any of those things. It's just something we've noticed since we arrived here.

2. I have pretty much adjusted to driving here. At least I know where I'm going most of the time. I can handle the traffic and even the motos. I now have thoughts of having to readjust to driving when we get back home. Driving here is now pretty much ingrained in me. Although, I still turn the wipers on occasionally when I signal for a turn! That's a little frustrating. One more thing about driving . . . I hope to never complain about Utah or any state drivers. If I do, please remind me about the drivers in Sibu.

Once in awhile we run into something fun to eat. This is a lime-flavored "dream" cycle. They are really good, but you have to eat them fast because they melt quickly! Ice cream here isn't quite the same as home, but close enough. There are a couple of interesting flavors here that we don't remember seeing at home. Would you believe corn and yam flavors? Sister Bodell has had the yam (purple) and quite liked it. We haven't gotten the courage to try the corn flavor yet. Not sure I'll ever be willing to try that. I'll stick with what I know I'll like.


There's very large river here; the Rajang River. It's not the most beautiful river in the world. The water is tan in color. However, I was lucky enough to get a pretty good shot of it at sundown. We got a couple of other nice shots from a different spot.

This is park on one of the many tributaries of the Rajang River.

It's some kind of a boat-looking structure.

The bridge over the tributary is beautiful.

This looks like it could be some sort of outdoor theater on the waterfront.

There is a lot more I'd like to share right now, but time is taking its toll so it will all have to wait. It's probably better to post in small chunks anyway. My attention span isn't that long either.
