bright and early this morning michael and i were up and out the door. we met some new friends and followed them to their church. it is a brand, spankin’ new church. and probably the biggest church we’ve seen in thailand. and we managed to understand the entire sermon. but don’t be too impressed, we had help.
at the other end of our radios was the husband of the family we came with. he’s australian and fluent in thai. i’m so jealous. not because he’s australian. it’s his thai speaking ability that i covet.
there was also a conference happening this weekend so we left between the service and the conference. when we got outside we found this.
all of the orange ovals are cars. the red one is our car. and the green circle is a tree. look sort of familiar? but we got out. how?
every car is in neutral without the parking brake engaged. so we the nice fellows that were outside to help us just shoved the cars around. moving them here and there like a puzzle. until we freed our car. but the only way we could get out was in reverse. michael handled it brilliantly.
