Halloween, birthday weekend and the visit of someone who looks like me

Saturday29October

Pictures say a thousand words.  With that in mind, here’s my post update for the week ending the 30th October.  Partly due to the fact I’m so damn lazy to write much about it, and I want to get on to my current adventures and where I am right now.  My twin came out to Bishkek to visit me.  Why she did that I’ll never know – it’s not like it’s a nice place – and she missed nearly a year of me in the far superior country of Croatia.  Still it was nice to see her after nearly 3 years apart, and I missed having someone to ball my eyes out with to Jennifer Rush – The Power of Love.  This was a special birthday.

Birthday laser tag!  Heaps of fun - especially since I won.  Or I would have won if I checked it

...and this!  Nightmare fuel princess Mombi from Return to Oz.  Not convinced anyone would know who she was, Alex bet me 1000 som that at least 5 people had to guess correctly or I'd lose.  We managed to get 4.  Not happy

This year's pumpkin effort.  It's a little shoddy because pumpkins are grown here to eat rather than carve.  On the upside it explains why that pumpkin pie I made years ago was rotten, and this year the soup was delicious

Olivier Le Blanc was doing a 40 portraits in 40 days challenge and was looking for volunteers!  I thought it would be nice to get a decent photograph of the two of us not looking shabby

And so there you have it!  A wonderful weekend and a good time was had by all!  Even when Alex drunkenly punched me in the face!  Ahhhhh we’ll all look back on that one day and laugh.  Oh how we’ll chortle.

My time in Bishkek is almost through.  In fact it is.  I’m writing this sweating balls in Bangkok.   The story of how I arrived here will be coming next.  Stay tuned dear readers – it’s a doozy.
