Kerri called. I (Alan) talked to her for about 2 minutes this evening. She was on her way to the boat to go out to the island. They’re hoping to start construction on the houses today. They had to take a nighttime bus ride to Phuket since there wasn’t room on the plane for them. Theymight get to take a plane back to Bangkok — can’t say for sure until it happens. She’s staying several miles out of town so she’s not close to internet access. They came to town last night and she had about 10 minutes to get online. It took 8 minutes just to get logged on! Her description of the trip so far is “hard, but good”.
