Location: Moscow, Russia

Ok it is not the 3rd of November but at last i found a place in Thailand that will develop my photos and put them onto CD for me. Only problem is that they did not do it in order. Once they are up i will try and order them best to my knowledge. But till then please just enjoy them. Also let me know what you think.

Hey mate...
how are you getting on.... it seems that you have dropped off the end of the world. hope not. has the SARS virus got in your way...
be good Bee
Response: SARS hasn't hit me yet. It looks like they have handled it well here excepth China. Good for me as the lack of Tourists really made Angkor that much more special. Oh and Bee i'm always 'good' like you are...???
From Saj
Hey Beans, pls be careful with all these pneumonia-like diseases flying around. We love u. Take care, Saj x

There's one from Laos on the way... Ohhh big news i saw Ravi yesterday on TV. It is the first match i watched. But i did not see him bat :(

From Samuel
Hi Binoi !
I'm Nath's brother, and Ermias' brother in law.
What a nice travel you've being doing there ! I saw your pictures, especially Thailand and Vietnam ones... and I remember some of the places where I've been with my sister (in Pai, I think I recognize the guest house !)

Take care and hve fun !
Response: Thanks Samuel. Ermias has mentioned you and your ability to drink. It is always good to hear when people talk about the good times they had and recognize places they have been to.
From nathalie
waooh, amazing pictures... You can't believe how I felt to see the Trekking ones, I went there too, I loved Pai, and the villages we went through.
What's next?

Aren't you going to tell us about any of your Binoisms??

take care,

Response: What Binoisms??? I think for those you will have to wait. Next is Laos for me. The trekking was great and i really wish i had taken the 7 day one. But time is short as i am trying to be on the Islands for the Water Festival which i have been assured is a real good time :) I'm just wondering if there will be any wet t-shirt comps....
From Ermias
Hi binoi,
how is everything? There are some really greatphotos that you have up there, especially the ones of Halong Bay. By now you must be in Laos so have fun and keep the photos coming.

Response: Actually i missed all the boats today for Laos. I could have crossed the border but the last 8 hour truck (actually a pickup) ride to Luang Nam Tha was at noon. The place is only 200km away but will find out why it takes soo long tomorrow.
From Imraan
Hello Binoi,
Glad to know that you're still going strong! The photographs are fantastic. It's truly amazing how you're seeing all these different places. Good luck with the remainder of your trip and take care of yourself.
Best wishes,
Response: Thanks Imraan. Nice to hear from you after all this time. Keep checking back as i will try and keep the pics updated.
From Kunj
Hey Rico, how are you? Everyone here says hi and hope you're enjoying yourself. I'm thinking of quiting my job soon, v.bored with it. Let me know as and when you're in Australia as a good uni friend is travelling out there and a good friend of mine lives in Sydney. I think I'll be out there for 2 weeks at some point this year.
Take care,
Response: Nice to see that you're up and running again. I should be in Aussie land in about 2 months more or less. Closer to the time i'll let you know if i haven't been side tracked.
From Dom

Glad to see the love handles haven't diminished in stature even if the hairdo has!!!!

I'm impressed by the pictures - almost up to the standard of those of us who use our cameras on modes other than automatic.......Nikons excepted as there's not much else you can do with them!!!!

Safari njema!!!

Response: Asante sana boss. Even i was impressed with what photos i have taken. Next is Laos and Cambodia. I hope those are even better.
From nish

Response: Neel it is always a pleasure to hear from you. I guess being the first person to post a message to me could be your claim to fame. Keep checking the site as i'll be adding more when time allows.
From Alpa
The fotos are amazing - I still can't get over all the stuf you're doing!
