  • Day120

    Monday is a day of rest

    October 1 in Myanmar

    Yesterday's buffet was amazing! Grilled lobster and mimosas, to name only two things. After food, we went to the pool where the champagne kept flowing. Then many of us went to a hasher couple's home. They had two beautiful and well trained golden retrievers, so I was able to catch up on my doggy love. The cat that came with the house was also very friendly and kept climbing into my lap. It was the perfect way to top off an amazing 22 days of almost non-stop hashing.

    Tomorrow I have a flight to Kuching, Malaysia, on the island of Borneo. I am so excited to be going to another destination I learned about from National Geographic magazines as a kid. I love my life!

    For today, I plan to give my liver a break and make my stomach earn its keep by stuffing my face with a Hard Rock Cafe cheeseburger. My hostel is purposely only a five-mile walk away. First, though, I have to actually get out of bed. This may be difficult. 😉

    So long [for now] and thanks for all the fish. ✌️

    Sunday is a hashing day

    September 30 in Myanmar

    The trail yesterday was in town with no serious mud or muck, which was nice. Just after the beer stop, I was alone on trail and running to catch up to the main pack. The locals were mostly laughing and pointing which way to go. Except one lady. She was very upset. She grabbed my arm as I went by and yelled, "I hate you!" When I told the local hashers about the incident, they were shocked. The Myanmar people are very well known for how friendly they are to everyone, so what I experienced was definitely far from ordinary. After trail, we had a great circle with people sitting on huge blocks of ice to atone for their shenanigans. Then we were bussed back to the hotel.

    Saturday evening was an amazing buffet in the hotel ballroom, complete with two ice luges, a birthday cake, and a live band. Terrific!

    Right now, we're having circle for the hangover trail we just finished. After this, we'll walk down the street to a hotel buffet. Yummy!

    So long [for now] and thanks for all the fish. ✌️

    A little scavenger hunt

    October 24, 2016 in Myanmar

    Today, I took it easy to catch up on sleep, work and skype time with my loved ones.

    I did have one little adventure though: the charging cable for my phone broke and it's a type of cable which is not easily found just anywhere. So I went on a scavenger hunt of calling electronics shops, asking around, going to 2 shopping malls. I learned a lot about this city of 7 million people (which a taxi driver called a small city :) ), language barriers and wonderful, kind people. I ended up finding the cable at a little mobile shop on the side of the street and was so happy, the sales guy didn't know what was happening :-)

    The most fascinating thing to me are all the little street grocery places, that set up shop in the morning on the curb side and sell veggies, meat, nuts or fish, like in the one picture I took all day ;-)
