I took a long train ride across 6 degrees of latitude. Bangkok is about 13 degrees north, so I’ll call this a narrow road to the slightly north.
When I got to Bangkok, I went straight to the snack aisle.
On the Fourth of July weekend, I might normally have a barbeque. Perhaps some potato chips too. This year I decided to mix up the menu a bit, so I skipped the potato chips and went for snacks with a higher protein content.
I’ve been cutting back on the potato chips recently, and doing a bit of running. Last weekend I was up early on Sunday to join a large crowd in Surat Thani province for a 30 km run through the beautiful Khao Sok National Park.
And I use some in the Pickwickian sense. Or I could call it quadracious. With 5.9 km this morning, I passed 2015 in total distance. 2014 still sets the standard, but I’m going after it in the year/s ahead.
For the past month, I’ve been making an intense study of the grasses in a rather narrow latitude, from 44 to 49°N.
There are many grasses at sea level, but I find some really interesting specimens at a higher elevation.
