    How are you seeing the New Year in?

    Don't fly until the after the New Year so will be ringing in 2019 in icy Ulanbaator. When it's -31 and smoky out the idea of standing around Sukhbaatar Square for fireworks seems more of an ordeal than a pleasure. Still, that is apparently what people want to do: dinner followed by standing in the cold

    A bit of a quirk here that I have mentioned; the first of EVERY month is no booze allowed, so I'm not sure much will happen after midnight.

    Staying in sounds like the better option the more I think about it.

    New York Time Squarers - hanging round waiting to watch the ball drop at midnight - doesn't matter how cold it is, the place is always packed, people start collecting in mid-afternoon to get a "good view". All standing around shivering with smiles on their faces. Never understood it. Get a better view on the TV.

    uhm... not necessarily in that order?


    New Years Eve, midnight is well beyond my bedtime... as is typical we'll be doing our regular temple merit making stuff to stack the karma deck...

    So here's what I can expect:

    There is also the tradition of hiking the local mountain and taking your togs of for a snow bath-just got over a cold, so will be passing on that idea.

    Should be slinging about sepandon. Bit windy here now. That clears the smoke and dust. Hell, I did bring another kite. And a Benjamin Franklin. I'll see where that gets me.

    Now if I only had a key in a lightning storm.

    If I do head out, sadly this awful excuse of vodka will no doubt feature

    Despite the claim, there is little premium about it. It will mess you up the next day.

    ^"distilled with pure mountain water drawn from pristine sources"

    Does it have a smokey taste?

    If you are a pikey like me, and you mix it with coke/orange and ice, the quality is less apparent. The after effects, not so much.

    I'll be at my in-laws who must be the only non-alcohol drinking Thai family in, well, Thailand. So I'll be getting pissed by myself while we watch something on the Tele.
