We arrived in the evening in Bangkok and it was great to be able to walk the streets at night.
Chevy was tired from our 11 hours of flying and slept for 16 hours straight
I had a leg massage that was so fantastic I walked into the place next door and had a full Thai massage. One hour massages were less than $10, so I started thinking about staying.
It is incredible here how many western men are 'dating' Thai women.
The city was very hot and humid with temperatures around 34 degrees celcius. According to emails from home we were 70 degrees warmer than Calgarians going through a cold snap.
We took the overnight train to Chiang Mai in search of cooler temperatures and to start our volunteer stint.
