A nice, clean, decent budget hotel. Caters to Asian guests. Rooms are tidy, if old, sheets were new and clean. Mattress was the firmest I've ever slept on. Aircon was noisy but effective. The bathroom did not smell. Breakfast was same each day, but enough variety to satisfy. I supplemented it with khanom krok from a street vendor around the corner. Staff was friendly, although the doorman gave up very quickly trying to get me a taxi when I checked out.

Breakfast where there were more waiters than diners. On the bus at 7:30 to go to the border. A rough road which became unmade and full of potholes about halfway. Arrived at the border around 10:30.

My blisters felt like hot iron pokers every time I took a step and my body was protesting at every movement. We were late getting to work, but it didn't seem like anyone really noticed.

... and spicy. Mine was full of vegetables! Or so I thought. It was actually full of seasonings like lemon grass and ginger. When you try to eat them, it is like chewing wood. I did not learn until much later – you are not supposed to eat them. To be fair, it is hard to get a bite of soup without getting at least one wood chip in your spoon.
So the Khaosan Road is a very touristy area. There are tons of small street stalls ...
... constant conjunction of events prevents me from easily observing the changes undergone in my character and view of the world since then. I hope I changed from that. I want to continue to change for the better. I hope I can do what my Heavenly Father wishes me to do, and be the person He wants me to be. My thoughts came back to the present. What can I do to live in the now? I remembered something that Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Monk of Theravada said- that we should first ...
... filled with laughing gas (of course, I objected myself to this on my first night with some other travellers I met - hilarious!); to name a few..
This area really does have a lot to show, though I am glad to know all of Thailand will not be like this.. I am now on my third night on Khao San, and this little lady is ready to move on.
Next stop - an incredibly too long bus ride to Phuket for a few days of beach life!
