|Well, we're down to the last day and have just a few things to do. Bags have been repacked and hey, nothing extra in but a pair of thick socks (Brian has read the temperature in Mongolia!). We have had Tracey Greg and the two girls staying since Sunday and have had much pleasure and fun with Abbie and Charlee- they will be 5 and 3 when we see them in Dallas at Christmas. It has taken much longer to prepare for this trip than the usual holiday- mostly due to tying up the legal bits and pieces. It's tru what they say- the more you own the more responsibility you have! Backpacks on and we're off- the next epistle will be after the Maldives and much more exciting to read!
