So after the longest consecutive flights of my life, 17 hours total, Ashley and I finally got to Bangkok and our guesthouse. My butt just started getting feeling back. So, obviously there are many strange things here like, why have I heard avril laveigne so much? Why is everyone so very skinny? Could I buy pants here? Which of the stray dogs/cats could I love without getting rabies?

Had a long and extremely eventful first day. Saw the grand palace which is like huge, and what every quintessential postcard picture of temples have been. We also had a run in with a scary lady with no teeth and pigeons which was so confusing. The emerald buddha was big but not as big as I thought and dressed in his rainy season wear. And after a cheap tuk tuk ride to the tourism authourity place along with stops along the way to various shops so our driver could get commission, also a long story, but a very cheap ride, we found out that half our plans aren't going to work. Such as the recent myanmar natural disaster, Pai is out and so is koh lanta for bad weather, ferries aren't going to work. And we may go to a different nat'l park. BUT we were able to see the best transvestite show in the world. The Calypso Cabaret was extrememly immpressive. I was really sure that they were all women, until they talked . . . and they all have boobs, nice ones. Worth every penny I recommend it. Khao san road is super touristy as expected but glad I went. The plan tomorrow is to get a couple massages, and plan the rest of the trip or replan whats not gonna work. I hope this all makes sense I really need to get to bed. Its 12:30am but I don't really know what time I think it is yet.
Love,
a
