Well, it is official now that I will
not go to visit Laos this summer. Because the Radio Station, I mentioned

I hope that Laos in the future will play a foreign policy of neutrality,
and restore the historic kingdom. But in the meantime ust hope the shooting
My brother, Hit in Laos is fine. He
still occupies the same kind of job. He earns eighty-five thousands kips
a month! But wait, now one American dollar is equivalent 350 kips. That
is not much at all, besides he has two child. However, I am glad that
he is able to support his family.
I decided not to take a job this summer.
I thought it is wiser to go to summer school if I can. I asked the assistant
of the Headmaster of Scarborough School about summer school. He said that
he is happy to work with me in sciences. He is in fact the Sciences teacher
