So we leave (God willing) for Thailand in 7 days. Sarah helped me dust off a suitcase, and collect her cloths. 5 t-shirts, 2 swim suits, 4 pairs of shorts, 1 pair of long pants, sandals, sun glasses, etc... She is totally packed. Now I pack Jessica and the boys and myself. Nicole has her own list. Juergen will pack himself (probably next Wednesday an hour before we go). I made a special calendar for Sarah to help count down the days. Each morning she puts a sticker on the calendar. We will take the calendar with us to Thailand so she can keep track of the days. On our last trip we actually lost track of the days and missed our return flight. That's pretty easy to do when you are having such a great time! We have a washing machine in our apartment in Bangkok, and laundry service in the apartment in Hua Hin. There is no need to pack too many cloths. Most Asian hotels have laundry service, but not all do. When my mom and I where in China we could not find anyone who could do our laundry. We had to wash underwear in the bathroom. We wore cloths that were stinky and dirty…it was not ideal. You just have to check.
