Tropical Depression 8 (sounds like a psychiatric disorder) skirted by us this morning as it headed up the coast to the outer banks of North Carolina. It brought a bit of rain and lowered the temperature, we may finally have a day not in the 90's. Then Thursday into Friday Tropical Depression 9 heads into the Gulf of Mexico, makes a 90º turn and goes across Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Lots of rain forecast for that one. We need it, it's been a very dry summer.
We're busy getting organized for our next trip, we're off to Japan to see our daughter and then taking her with us for a few days in Cambodia. I have always wanted to see the temples of Angkor Wat. This is going to be new territory for us, we usually travel in Europe. Having our daughter living in Japan has finally given us the incentive to go there. Interestingly enough on our way to Cambodia we have a lengthy layover in Korea and we've signed up for a day trip into Pusan, they run the tours from the airport for those who have long layover. Mac was stationed in Korea many years ago, but that was up on the DMZ so he says he doesn't know Korea at at all.
Our daughter has a bunch of stuff planned for Japan including a visit to a volcano, a Japanese baseball game and a train trip to Nagasaki. In Cambodia Mac has arranged for a private guide for the time were there. I'm starting to count days till we leave.
