tonight, we begin picking up students at the airport.
by next week we'll be visiting elephants and learning thai massage from a master in chaing mai.
beth had me bring a santa claus hat, to help the incoming travelers identify us in a sea of humanity at the airport. remember, most of our students will arrive tired, having been in airports and planes from 16-28 hours straight.
yeah, it's geeky, but when ultra-tired people (who you've never met) are looking for you in a foreign airport, the santa-hat thing works!
