So today is the first day that I would really like to write about an experience that was difficult here in Thailand – partly because of cultural differences, and partly because sometimes things are just difficult – but.. since this is the world wide web — I will not.
Instead I will post this sweet picture of a pumpkin..
..and let you guys know that I had a very good weekend (really. not just blowing around sunshine because I’m realizing I can’t be too critical on here.)
Dressed up as a witch and went to a pub with another American, a couple of awesome Danish girls and a few Israeli guys. We also met up with a really cool Irish girl and her Canadian boyfriend — it was kind of like a very festively dressed mini-UN.
Saturday night a friend of mine and I went and bought tickets to go see DJ Shadow — which is really exciting — and we walked around Khao San Road for the first time — which gave me insight into why backpackers usually aren’t too impressed with Bangkok.
Dad also got me these sweet lamps —
which are a huge quality of life improvement – and so now I no longer feel like I am going to wilt under flourescent lights. Which is great.
Send me updates on your Halloweens, and I hope things are good with everyone!
(and really.. all that being positive did actually make me feel better – go figure.)
