Arriving in Bangkok

If you were born before 1990, chances are that you know how it feels to get a splinter from the playground jungle gym during recess. That is exactly what arriving in Bangkok felt like. After 36 hours of travel (and a very food poisoned BC) we stepped into a whole new world.

Bangkok is an interesting, interesting city. I have never seen anything like it. Traffic law does not exist, the streets smell of delicious (and sometimes not so delicious) eats, and the pollution is unrivaled.

Very Polluted

But our spirits were not broken. We were stoked to be here and to begin our new journey. Now we just had to figure out where to live, how to get there, what those street smells really are, and why (dear baby Jesus why!) do we have to share the streets with chihuahua sized rats…so gross.
