Week 1

Exploring Bangkok with Kevin

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.

Wat Pho and the reclining buddha

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.

Beach on an island off of Pattaya

Free concert in Pattaya
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.
