Jeff and I flew from Mandalay to Bangkok and are spending the night at a hotel near Don Mueang International Airport before our connecting flight to Bali, Indonesia, early tomorrow morning.
Got up at 8:18 a.m. at AD 1 Hotel in Mandalay. Eat breakfast on the roof with John, a New Zealander whom I met on the bus from Bagan to Mandalay. Jeff …

... It was a laugh though. We chilled in that bar for an hour or so longer, until we were quite drunk, and then we were off. Beth and I got a braid, and then we all had a Thai massage which was great. I reckon we didn't get in until 4 ish, but luckily Jonny and I have nothing planned for today. I do feel sorry for Scott and Beth having to get up at 8 today to get the bus to Cambodia, but at least they can sleep on the ...
