I have no clothes. I have no clothes and I am wearing sweatpants! Which I am seriously considering chopping off at the knee if they do not find my luggage soon. It didnt surprise me to find that I didnt have a backpack, I sort of assumed that when traveling that far it was bound to happen.

Im not too worried but I am hot. And I cant have a shower. I stink and Im wilty.

I also cant find type on these keyboards so forgive the lack of proper punctuation, half of these keys put down something else when I push on them.

Regardless of this mishap, I cant keep the shitass grin off my face. Im FINALLY here! I took public transit to my hostel which proved to be only a tiny bit challenging but mostly easy. I cant even begin to understand Thai writing but luckily for me everything is written in the english alphabet underneath it. Most people that Ive spoken to thus far have a least enough english to tell me they dont understand and point me to someone who does.

So far Thailand reminds me a bit of Mexico. Smelly, both good and bad stenches, dirty and hot. Random fruit and veggie stands are everywhere. That excites me though Im more than a little apprehensive about eating on them. Im sure by tomorrow I will be though.

Illness is inevitable, why prolong it...question mark...I cant find the question mark either. I have to do something while Im waiting for my bags. Right now, however, Im off to find some flipflops and a sarong. Or something. Something cooler than sweatpants!

Love it!
It all sounds wonderfully exciting, sweatpants, smells and all.

It takes a certain je ne sais quoi to be both sweaty and witty simultaneously, especially when not entangled with a lover and in sheets, it's a show of character and grace. Thank you for keeping me in the loop!
