I am off in Thailand with my son, wife and new daughter, who we are in the process of adopting. It is an interesting country. Very tropical and friendly. It would be nice to speak the language as that is the main barrier to getting a better sense of the place. We are almost through the adoption process. We visited a furniture factory one day. The pictured logs are teak and rosewood from right to left. The woman in the purple shirt is cutting mother of pearl inlay with a small bow-saw. The man carving is working a project of deep relief carving that will take him 6 months or so. the rosewood table and chairs feature the inlayed mother of pearl. The boat is one of many very interesting craft to be seen on the Chao Praya river in Bangkok. Most are wooden and they all see to go very fast.
