Getting quite excited now, I've managed to get over my slight packing breakdown and have made some good progress in the putting things in boxes arena, probably taken it off my list of potential careers on my return, but I'm getting better none the less. We visited the Thai embassy to get our visa yesterday which made everything feel a lot more real and exciting, this could have been the first travel related amusing story about bureaucracy, waiting and hilariously complicated form filling out, unfortunately it went very smoothly and efficiently, taking away any blog story potential! But let's hope that will set up a whole year of quick efficient visa getting and queuing, Jen thinks I'm a little optimistic!
On a more fruit based note, I've been eating a lot of oranges at recently, enough that I have started to wonder if it is bad for you, (probably another sign of not having worked for 6 weeks and having too little to think about) will my skin go orange, will my insides dissolve in a vat of citric acid, will my nails get ludicrously hard to enable efficient pith removal, very worrying, but I can't find anything yet! Here is a picture of some oranges for those of you who were unsure what I was talking about.
