Laurie Weed, Boom Ball Squaw and The Sands' tireless ambassador to the world, checks in from Luang Prabang, Laos where she is observing Christmas Eve with local friends Paan (pictured) and her husband Ek. Weedie sends back a festive snapshot of them at an outdoor eatery. The occasion was meant to be special by virtue of Paan's laboriously home made pumpkin custard (brought to the restaurant and stored in its kitchen for dessert). Instead the restaurant's wait staff were unable to resist the concoction's luscious charms -- thus they ate it themselves. No word on whether a tip was left.
Weedie, honey, will you please get the PodCasting thing down? We're on the edge of our seats here.
