This is a quick and nasty post to see if I've gotten the hang of blogging from my ipadmini right now, from Vietnam and Cambodia. Just a stupid picture from a street corner is attached, again to test if my website links with Facebook. If it all works, well, expect some "Random Thoughts from the Bumpy Road" in days to come.

The tailbone is the first to throb. The pain first numbs the buttocks then runs down to swell the legs. The neck soon stiffens into a knot. The window seat at the back row, upper deck, of the jumbo 380 Airbus, capacity 506 souls, is no Lazyboy, that be sure. More like a hi-tech lawn chair with less recline and a bit more woven padding. Unless you're in first class ensconced in a private cabin in the shape of a bed, the15-hour flight from Los Angeles to Guongzhuo in China decries the old saying: "What's important is the journey, not the destination." Phoowee. Maybe true once, but now, FALSE. Not with that nice Chinese countryman next to me aromatizing the air with his continuous pungent farts. No, just get me there already. (Jan 4)
