Summer Loving:: Day 3 June 18, 2008

Photos taken during the summer of 1999, a very special summer. We had many adventures, my lovely man and I. Went to Thailand for a month to visit my parents in Bangkok and then traveled all around the country. Here are some highlights that I have no photographic proof of (or at least none that I’m sharing):

* We took an overnight train ride to a little town near the Cambodian boarder. I woke up to a blurry eyed E. who immediately threatened to, “write a letter to my congressman” about the clinking and clanking that kept him up all night. We still throw that phrase around when things aren’t to our liking and it cracks us up every time. * Getting engaged in Lumpini Park * Climbing the concrete bleachers to watch Azerbaijani play Pakistan in a match at a massive Thai soccer stadium. * Going to Koh Phra Thong for E’s birthday and waking up to the sound of monkey laughter. * Lazy jet lagged early mornings. * And of course, multiple trips to Suan Jatujak.

Here are the photos I do want to share! They are from our trip to Ayutthaya, the ancient capitol of Thailand. They were taken with my 35mm film camera and I scanned them to monster size, apparently. I have spent all the time my headache and I are able to try and fix the issue. So enjoy my super-sized vacation photos! Fries with that?

    These bring back happy 2001 summer memories for me. What an amazing time I had with my big sister there! Now I understand why she loved Thailand so much. I want to go back, NOW!

    The texture looks so good on film. I went there in 1995. That makes me feel old!

    I DO have proof of the couple on that visit! Shall I post? What a special, special time in Thailand that was. What a special couple you still are.
