Life in Laos through the lens of a diplomatic wife raising twin toddlers.

Cuteness Update

With job applications submitted and big loud Lao-style outdoor party thrown, time to catch up here on this blog.

I kind of enjoy the waiting phase of a job search, having fulfilled my responsibility of applying I can relax into other things without the overhanging pang of guilt. This helped to make the party that I stressed over for ten days (according to my husband although I remember only stressing out for only two days prior to the event) a big success. The local staff seem to have really enjoyed themselves and we drank and danced and laughed until late into the night. I hadn’t danced so much or laughed so hard in a very very long time. Apparently, that is the way the Lao party and I like it. Before our party I used to curse our neighbor’s loud music but yesterday I found myself dancing with my kids to the beat of someone else’s party this time, without feeling at all annoyed about it, although I don’t think I’ll feel the same when they break out the karaoke. Oh! Such bad karaoke! For a country with poor quality electronics on the market, everyone seems to still be able to pump up the volume.

There are pictures to come of markets and other sights from around Vientiane in future posts, but I’d like to update our grandmothers, other relatives and friends on the cuteness of our kids over these past weeks since they grow up too fast and you wouldn’t want to miss it!…

The weather has gotten cool enough to play at the usually hot playground near the river.
