Internet access is had!

In my next few to several entries I am going to try to make up for my egregious lack of posts with lots and lots o' pictures.

But for now, I will ask you one question: What's up with this lil' fella?

After asking one local about this possible mascot that I saw around Unnam, he looked at me in confusion. After trying to describe what a 'mascot' was and asking him if Unnam Dong had one, I drew a picture for him and he excitedly shouts, "Massacoahti! Massacoati!"

Just as I was feeling some relief I realized, with the help of a fellow foreigner, that he was simply saying 'mascot' in Konglish and had no inside knowledge to offer.

This alone has caused its own episode of culture shock, I hope I can overcome so as to deliver promised blog entries.

We shall see.

Hooray for the internet! Do you take blog requests? If so, I would like to hear about the food. And, whether or not they have fancy toilets. If they do have fancy toilets, please blog in detail.

Of course, food and squirty toilets! Excellent blog fodder indeed!
