Google me this

When you are away from smart phones, regular internet access, and cell phone signal you start coming up with random things that you want to google.  Because we always seem to forget when we get before a computer Chris and I have started a running list of "to google":

the mundane:
-Malaria prevention research 

A rather boring google about which medicine to buy to renew our stash of malaria meds.

the random:
- Hamsters and gerbils in the wild 
Chris and I have been debating for months if hamsters and gerbils exist in the wild.  I said they do and I would like to see a pack of wild feral hamsters taking off down the street; Chris thinks they are some strange hybid of rat and something he failed to name.

Winner winner chicken dinner!

I'm right! Hamsters come from Syria while gerbils are from China and Turkmenistan and can grow up to 16 inches long.  

the rumors:
Jesus making a cameo in Texas

Some random Indonesian chatting us up while we were waiting for a bus told us that he knew all about Texas because he once read an article about how the face of Jesus is visible in the Texas sky.   


He was insistent that you could see Jesus's face in the sky and couldn't believe that we didn't know what he was talking about. 

Granted, he did follow that by asking us if Texas was it's own country...

Out of curiosity, I did some googling and found out that there have been several UFO sitings, a plague of grasshoppers invading Texas in 2000, the largest cross in the western hemisphere with a reproduction of Jesus's tomb, and a lot of websites about the end of the world.

But sadly, no Jesus in the sky...

Hey, we've been together constantly for three months... there are only so many things to talk about before you starting discussing wild hamsters.

Indonesian snack...

Add several slices of fruit (inc sour mango, papaya, pineapple, cucumber, and those red things that look like apples but aren't) add freshly made peanut sauce.

Dig in!

An Update


Sorry to be out of touch for so long.  Chris and I are in a remote island in the East of Indonesia and internet is sketchy at best.

We're headed to Vietnam in a week and a half and I plan on writing tons to update everyone!

Hope all is well at your homes!
