As soon as I arrived at the hotel, I changed into my shorts and t-shirt, washed my face and went downstairs to the restaurant. Yum.....Thai Food. The lady at the front desk was just grinning at me because I was so stupid over my meal. She kept looking over at me and I was making faces and rubbing my belly. The best part of all was, the soup, noodles and 2 beers and 1 hour of Internet, barely $8.00.
As you can guess by now i made the flight. No problems at all. Even got an aisle seat upon my initial check-in. The flight I thought was 7.5 hours was actually 10+ hours not including the 50 minute departure delay. I barely slept on the plane but could not stay awake on the bus. Must be the humidity. I think I will go to bed and get a good night sleep and hit the streets bright and early and see the city.
My first impressions of Bangkok: Big, congested, motorbike drivers with no fear, humid, very green, friendly people.
It looks like we are about to have a little rain storm, ahh no make that a big rainstorm, as I sit here and type this the bottom dropped out. Welcome to Thailand in the rainy season!
