Good morning, everyone!  Just a brief note to let everyone know that I arrived safely in Thailand last night.  It was a great flight from JFK (I looked for Santa Claus when I crossed over the North Pole, but the lights were out at his place, so I can only assume he's taking a little time off given the end of season rush).  Thai Airways was great- open bar, amazing airline food (that's right!), and unlimited movies from an in-seat entertainment console!  It made the 17-hour flight 17 hours, but much more pleasant than expected.  After a quick connection to Chiang Mai and a red truck taxi ride, I was at my guesthouse a little after 9:30 pm, Thailand time.

I'll be here for a few days before I check into Wat Phra That Doi Suthep to begin my meditation studies.  Today, I'll be exploring the city by foot and doing a little shopping.  Here are a couple of pictures from my guesthouse!

Happy New Year to everyone!

New Year's Geetings!
Hi Steve! Glad to hear you made it safe! You are definately an inspiration to me and others (not enough to get me on a plane for 17 hours yet though...keep working) I hope that your New Year brings you more then you could imagine and that you survive without your Treo ha ha. Thanks for the book it's perfect! My friends know me so well! Can't wait to see anyother entry! Enjoy!

Hey Steve,
Glad to hear that you made it safely. Are you living up your last few days of freedom before forcing yourself to search out your inner demons? Ha! Here's to hoping that your demons are more like little angels. Happy New Year, Happy New You!
