Edit Blog Post
Published: July 13th 2008
Oh, it seems like just yesterday I was packing my little dictionary and thesaurus so when I sat down to write on this blog I could be thoughtful, maybe even poetic. However, I did not expect that the keyboard would also have symbols not known to me and I would be so tired that I swear I hear water running but I know it can't be water because I'm in a computer lab.
I'm too tired to even try to write paragraphs so I'm taking the easy road and going with bullets. Be prepared, this may be the new pattern for the next six weeks.
- We arrived in Bangkok today at 12:30PM after three flights, totaling 26 hours. The flights were all fantastic and does not seem as brutal as you think. The food however was unidentifiable, so the peanut MMs I bought at CVS played a much bigger role in this trip than I had anticipated.
- After long passport lines, customs and money exchange we were off to our guest house "Rambuttri Village". (Baan Chantra had no rooms available). We were let out on Khoan San Road and thanked our taxi driver. The heat was
unbearable and we walked around with our backpacks on for 20 minutes before we found our hotel. Not officially here for 2 hours and ready to say see you later to the backpack.
-We were too excited to stay put so after buying some much needed water we took off to walk the streets. We eventually ate, went to a temple and then took a tuk tuk to another temple. It was supposedly some birthday and if you touched the feet of the Buddhist it would be good luck. So, there we went shoeless to the foot of this enormous Buddha and as you touch the feet, minus the thumbs, the gold flakes remain on your fingers and then you wipe them on your forehead. I'm really not sure if this is making any sense, so you'll need to be very forgiving.
I'm giving up, can't write any more. I'll see how long it takes to get some pictures up here. There is no spell check, so PLEASE, just let it slide!
Till next time
