I was working with B under the mango trees outside our office the other day and saw this door and had to take a picture. So pretty!

What a view!
spiders
These little insects are so cool! If you try to touch them they jump away. They look like spiders right?!

Not only celebrating Mark’s time with us, but his birthday and Ammala’s too!
boat
*Mark fell in 2 minutes later*

For those of you who read my previous post, you will understand when I say the dizziness is gone!

After a visit to the doctor in Udon, Thailand, I can stop worrying as nothing came back negative. Nonetheless, I got medication to get rid of the dizziness and get myself back to normal! I instantly started feeling better.

The pictures are from the other day with my communications team from World Vision! We were celebrating Mark and all the fantastic-ness that is he. He is a social media guru, comms advocate and hilarious guy. I am so happy to call him my friend.

We planned a day at Ban Lao Pako- an eco lodge by Nam Ngum River with a nice hiking trail and a beautiful river! Some of us went swimming by choice while others like Mark, fell in. We laughed so hard, from trying to swim against the current to accidentally sinking the boat.

My manager Nila has a crazy contagious laugh that I can not get enough of. She can’t say a funny story without laughing hysterically the whole time, and it cracks me up to the point of crying. Every.single.time.

I’m so lucky to have such amazing coworkers. They call our team a family and start e-mails by saying ‘dear family’…Come on, how adorable is that?!

You will be missed Mark!
