Thanks! yes, I'm living here and it's a take off from the book :-0 The movie has been sort of my "therapy", especially with no tv! My husband lived here for a year and I just moved here in December from Southern California. Orginally from Toronto. I love it here. It's an adventure, that's for sure, which is what my blog is going to be about. I have about 30 rough drafts already. Everything from re-locating your pets (4 fat cats) to the bathroom situation (I have sliced my toes a million times!),working with my tutor and all the funny little things about living here. Night markets, where to buy cleaning supplies, buying groceries, hawker stalls. So many things you would never think to search online! not just where to "sleep, swim and stuff your face"!
Thanks again for your help!
