Family Visit-In CO

My Aunt Linda and her two kids Sara and Ryan came out one weekend to visit me in Colorado. Troy and I took them up to Estes Park and up one of the paths. They did pretty good for low-landers! (summer 2005)
Also we took a mild hike the first day up in the Poudre Valley with Belle and Sandy.

Ko Lan (coral island)

Went to the closest local island near Pattaya today via private speed boat. Its called Ko Lan (Ko= island, Lan=coral). The water was to crazy to do any snorkeling but it made for a nice day at the beach. (friend had their camera with so you get double today's pictures)

Well after getting tons of grief for not bungee jumping last week....Boris decided to try it again. Well nothing changed! He paid to go up two more times, and two more times he didn't jump! But Olga and salley did! So here is another picture of Boris just paying for a good view! Wonder if SOMEDAY he will do it?

China Olympics

For the first time ever I watched the opening ceremony for the Olympics---we got to watch live. I thought it was ok but overall very boring. I have learned people say its the best one yet---guess I am just sick of China stuff. LOL Here is the tv we watched the ceremony on. Good to know they did finish up all the stuff since we were there in May.
So we made up a drinking game to go with the ceremony---this game can only be played by globetrotting UOP employees-----we all drank every time they announced a country that someone at the table had been to....for the 17 of us at the table we hit over 50 countries! Not bad!

A first

Well I didn't do anything interesting today-and have nothing for a pictures. So today I am going to show you an old picture. This was from our weekend trip to the river Kwai.....everyone thought this picture was funny so I thought I should post it here also.....Boris and some unnamed hot girl. :)

Wednesday, August 6, 2008


Well you saw troy's work uniform...thats what I thought everyone got. Well apparently this guy (Boris) they decided need more FLARE! So here he is in his orange jumpsuit---looks like a DOC uniform to me! (department of corrections--aka jail)

Tuesday, August 5, 2008

Bungee Jumping

Olga, Salley and Boris all decided they were going bungee jumping today. I got to tag along to take pictures!
First up Salley-note her eyes are closed and she fell more then jumped.Second up-Olga, closer to a jump but because she was pushed.
Boris the lone man-I took this picture before he went up because I had a feeling he would back out.
And this as close as he got! Note the white knuckle grip! Well he paid full price for a nice view. When he got back down a little Thai girl went-and she did great, we gave Boris some crap and he decided to go AGAIN! Well he got back up there---and NOTHING, didn't do it. But he paid full price-TWICE.

Beach across the street.

This is the beach I visit the most-its right across the street for our hotel. Its not the greatest, but its a beach! The Hawkers (people who try to sell you everything!) can get annoying at times. But you can rent a chair with umbrella for about 40 Baht ($1) for the day.

Songthaew, also known as a Baht Bus

This is our main form of transportation while in the city. A Songtaews or bahat bus (the thailand money is Baht) can be hired very easily-there about a hundred outside of my hotel. Its a truck that has to benches in the back bed, you jump on and they take you to where you need to go...for pennies!!!!
You can sure pile in people!
