I nearly forgot, really.
Stephen and I had left to go to a meeting at work, on the way realizing it was Jenn’s birthday, and that we pathetically said nothing! My parents on the other side of the world got to her first by Skype, while she sat in my living room.
But, it was a good day.
We started with an early morning bike to the market, a personal favorite. We drooled over the fresh fruits and veggies and picked up some delicious Burmese breakfast.
The afternoon? A few firsts for both of us: a pedicure here in Mae Sot and a Thai massage. The pedicure was to be expected, but wonderful; the Thai massage is whole new story. Jenn loved it; Stephen and I felt our bubbles were a little crowded. I definitely would have chosen different underclothes if I’d known the top and bottom they gave me would be a thin white fabric missing an unfortunately located button.
Either way, we then took our time to cook some delicious Greek falafel, hummus, and spice cake!
