Exploring Bangkok with Kevin
23.12.2015 - 03.01.2016
Bangkok is already starting to feel like a new home. I am getting oriented to the city. Kevin and I took taxis and the sky train mostly but I still need to figure out the bus system. I have found a few favorite food places, I don't have a kitchen I am sure I will frequent them often. The street food is about a dollar a plate but the portions are much smaller, no left-overs, the restaurants are cheap too. Amarin Mansion has been almost empty, but we met a few of the students that were here for fall semester, they had great advice. When I get back from Cambodia next weekend there should be many new students moving in.
I have a balcony and my own bathroom behind the wardrobe.
We borrowed modest clothes to wear inside.

Christmas Dinner in downtown Bangkok
We walked around to see the lights, all the malls and hotels were decorated for Christmas even though it isn't an official holiday here.

Lots of tweens there to see a Thai heavy metal artist.
New Years Eve on Khao San rd, the backpacker street
It was crazy crowded but we escaped to the roof of a hotel and went back the next day to use the pool.
