Bangkok

No thanks, maybe later

semi-overcast

I haven't sweat like this since I ruined a refrigerator full of salmon on a hot summer day with slip and slides and rock bands.

Shawn and I have been in Bangkok for three days. The hardest thing to overcome is the spray boudee ...buh-day and how to get into the grand palace that's "closed for a Buddhist holiday." Nevertheless, we finally made it in. These enormous temples were covered in tiny mirrored mosaic glass and guarded by stern cement statues that keep the bad spirits out.

The hotel staff has warmed up to me after I figured out how to say hello properly. The streets smell like a combination of yummy thai food, garbage, incense and exhaust. Shawn and I are on our way to Pahnom Rung by the end of the day to catch our Solar eclipse. After that, our schedule is up in the air. Stay tuned for more updates as my internet cafe time is about to run out. Kap kun ka.
