The brother friends are in Thailand, as they are twice a year for three weeks. They return four days before we leave. NT ex politician/policeman and his Fijian Indian boyfriend leave this Friday for a Canadian cruise and romp in the US of A. Dyke friends will be in Thailand when we return I think. We will be away for all of June. All very confusing. We will have a big party when we all get back. 2008, the year of travel. Really though, it is only us travelling for such a long time that is unusual.
