Snow designs

I usually say this several times/ year - wow, it's been a long time since I posted something. I also decided to try these new designs. I kinda like this mountain design right now. While I was back in the US over the past two months, I kept reflecting - I haven't seen snow for ages (The last time was on the train in Oregon in 2003), and the last time I was out in it was in 1995.

I was standing at REI in Seattle, after having bought socks (strange thing to buy since I don't wear socks very often in Lao, but the cold season is approaching) and saw people with their purchases of snow gear and cross-country skis. I suddenly got a great yearning for staying in the US and engaging in snow sports.

The feeling didn't last long - and I'm back here in Lao. In spite of the end of the rainy season (and when the air should turn cold for several months), the temperatures were sweltering yesterday.
