Today I ........

I think, therefore I am, I think ...
Last week as I was returning home in the alley I heard a kitten crying. It turned out it was in a downpipe, just where it came out at a right angle before going down into the sewer. I got the neighbours to come out with a saw to cut the pipe, then realised I could jiggle the L joint apart. Behold one hungry five week old female tabby.

There's no chance of finding her mama, as she appeared to have fallen down the pipe from a two-storey rooftop. She's too little to survive in the street so I really had no choice but to bring her in for a few weeks at least. I have Mo from the pagoda staying here atm because he's got mange and looking sick. I thought he just needed fattening up but now I think he has underlying condition (possibly FIV). I should probably keep them apart but he likes to beat her up and she just goes back for more. I mean, she'll probably get FIV and mange as well but very difficult to keep them separated in my place. Yes I'm irresponsible.

I present: Dana Drainpipe.

That was a close one for her. What a lovely little face.

Are you gonna stay there Timmy? And do you speak the lingo fluently now?
And ... you are so nice to all the animals there. Yay you.
Still staying here. I gave up learning Khmer after a year here because I planned on leaving. But I couldn't sell the sack so I've been here five years and can do numbers/prices and about 200 words. I started mutual language lessons (English/Khmer) with one of the monks but we had to stop because of lockdown a couple of months ago.

I wanted to live in SE Asia. Cambodia had the easiest visa availability. Was really as simple as that.

Ah, okay. And you have made yiur home there now, or just temporarily?
I'm happy to stay a couple more years and then decide. If Vietnam offered an appropriate visa I could try there. Ditto if Thailand dialled down the police state they've got going on there. Malaysia if my finances are better.

Okay, so it sounds like you have options.
Where are you originally from?
