As always, my colleagues (now friends) at Srinakharinwirot University's Central Library made me feel right at home during my stay, and they seem to be genuinely interested in my experiences and how we do things in Ohio and U.S. academic libraries. The farewell party for this trip was warm, generous, and fun. I helped make some of the treats. The most interesting one is a nut/brown sugar filling formed into small balls, which are then covered with tapioca and boiled in water. The tapioca doesn't have very much taste, but it turns transparent, and holds everything together. Quite fun to make and tasty.

Warinthon is a PhD student in English at SWU whom I met in the library elevator. We struck up a conversation, and she agreed to be my tour guide on an outing to this gorgeous early 20th century palace built of teak, without nails, only wooden pegs.
