We've heard - through the wonder of Facebook - that they arrived safely in Bangkok where it was 37 degrees at 5.00 pm and the fan in their hostel wasn't a lot of use. They've met up with James (who used to be our lodger) and Heather, who're spending 10 months and two years respectively travelling. And they've been cooking with Poo, in the slums of Bangkok - and Younger Son said it was amazing.
So, so far so good - oh, except Nuora took a malaria pill before eating from a street vendor and promptly threw up - whether because of the pill, the food, the heat or the exhaustion - a 36 hour trip door to door. But she's been okay since.
Exciting times for them.
