Somewhere along the way, I decided that tea towels made excellent souvenirs of our travels. They were lighweight, relatively inexpensive, and plentiful in western Europe. I have tea towels from Scotland, from London, from Rome. I have tea towels with recipes for Wiener Schnitzel and Salzburger Nockerl. I even have a tea towel that features a portion of the Bayeux Tapestry. So when Karla the Texpatriate was heading off on her fantastic adventure to Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia, I asked her to snag me a tea towel if she happened to think of it.
Well, as it turns out, tea towels are not a big thing in southeast Asia. So she sent me this tea-shirt instead (get it?):
How cool is that?! I am the only girl at Fort Knox--heck, probably the only girl in all of Kentucky--wearing a Beerlao shirt today!
I was wondering what I could possibly send to Karla to say thanks for the shirt, and I was coming up blank. I think I know now though what Karla likes.
