Some Work Some Play

There’s a nice large reservoir about a half hour walk from Panya. If we have time after work to get there and back before sunset at 6 it’s a great way to get some exercise and get clean.

This lovely reservoir is a half hour walk from Panya.  If we have time after work to get there and back by sundown at 6 we love an afternoon swim

After a swim, so nice to be clean.

We’ll try and get pictures of a tropical rain storm next time we have one although its just like someone throwing buckets of water at you. If you are in it you are soaked through in about ten seconds. Amazing!!
