cauliflower girl

My students were all depressed looking the other day and I was like "what's wrong"? They said "it's hot." Hello, you are Lao! It wasn't even that hot that day, I think the humidity got them. But I like humidity better. At least I can sweat my way to freedom.

Suddenly things seem to be moving very quickly here. Yesterday my landlady came over and said "Do you want another room in your house?" I was like "Sure" She was like 'Okay we are going to build one tommorrow." And they started today, just like that. THe hot season started about a week ago, and we don't have air con in our office at school. But today I went back to the office after my class and there were like 12 work men in their installing air con. They have been trying to get it for 5 years and it finally happened today out of the blue! Things are crazy!

I don't mind having cultural experiences, but I hate the boredom aspect that comes from being a cauliflower in a sea of potatoes, knowing only my cauliflower language and customs, and not understanding the potato language, jokes, and most of all not appreciating their potato cuisine.

I have developed an aversion to Lao food since I have been sick. I can only stand to eat noodles "FUH" with like zero seasoning. The greasy smell of stir fried things still upsets me.

Mmm now I am looking forward to some pad thai in Thailand. Maybe at the train station. Also I like sushi. I have also been craving a nice salad with oil and vinegar based dressings. I find myself fantasizing about ordering a pizza when i get home to America, and also going to the Olive Garden for some minestrone. Well, allow me to wipe away my drool and get off of this food tangent.
