Today was my first full day in Bangkok. It was strange to wake up in a completely different place. I stayed in the hotel most of the morning, a little apprehensive to venture too far out. My professor was kind enough to meet take me out to lunch and show me some of the city. We went to the mall and had some amazing authentic Thai food for lunch, papaya salad and a spicy pork dish ...
