Thailand is great, except for the flooding right now. The past few days have left me well-fed and amazed by the tenacity and courage of farm workers in Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia, who often face hardships and evictions from what appear to be unconscionable contracts signed with sugar industry giants. Seriously, how do they do it?
In unrelated matters, I picked up this Circle Top by SFS, after reading Cheryl's raves. Although I could send it to my California address, I opted to have it shipped to Cambodia. Let's see if it makes it there. I hope it does. This top is made by Shinobu Sering, in San Francisco. And, it was on sale.
