1) Every time I cross a border, I thumb through my passport and admire the growing collection of stamps and visas. I was doing so yesteray when I noticed that exactly 1 year had passed between my first and second entries into Thailand: 07 Feb 2008 and 07 Feb 2009. Crazy, eh?
2) On a slightly different note, both my first (Singapore-Malaysia) and final (Laos-Thailand) border-crossing experiences were marred by Severe Gastro-Intestinal Distress. Due to the sensitive nature of the topic, I'll just leave it at that. Unless I get 5 comments (all from different non-anonymous readers, no cheating!) begging to know all about my adventures in digestion.
