We are currently sitting in a very smart invention, maybe it is everywhere but I just have not seen it - internet cafe in the airport. We are on our way to Phuket the beach town. After 4 days in Bankok - we are ready for some beach. Bangkok is amazing, but it is a sea of humanity. And really - how many massages can 2 people have? I may have broken in half from so many Thai women running up and down my back. We are safe and happy, though if you ask Jeremy, maybe not so safe. He is not such a fan of the cabs here. To his credit, this is the most rediculous driving city I have ever seen. It is traffic that would put NYC to shame. 11:00 am - bumper to bumper traffic. Midnight - bumper to bumper traffic
When I was younger my cat died and I was at summer camp, and my mom thought it best not to tell me until I got home, a month later. Needless to say I had a nightmare and freaked out that something happened to Punky and made Jeremy call petsmart last night at midnight. She's okay - not to worry. I was. Its a problem, I can't help it. I had a traumatic childhood of secrets. (:-) ) RIP Marshmellow the cat
Apparently the Thai new year begins this weekend in Thailand. And how do they celebrate you may ask? Well, monks ride around in the back of pickup trucks and throw water and people. Needless to say, I have had water thrown at me a number of times by passing monks. That is truly an experience I will likely never have again. Though I have to say - it is so flipping hot here - all I want to say to the monks is - THANK YOU! Will someone please google and tell me why they do this?
