I took another tuk-tuk tour yesterday morning, and it was quite nice. The driver, Challi, spoke English well, and we spoke frankly about the exchange of service after he asked me if I wanted to go to the Thai market, which I understood was his way of saying “I need gas.” But, he took me to two temples, too, so I was appreciative. Turns out, it’s a promotion going on between the drivers and the jewelery/fashion market during the weeks surrounding New Year’s, which is a big holiday/tourist season for them. Whateva, whateva.

He left me at Wat Saket, or the Golden Mount, where I met up with two BEAUTIFUL Brazilians–a couple–and we walked to a few more temples together. Calita told me the best places to visit Brazil and a little bit about her travels in Southern Thailand and Indonesia, we exchanged Facebook info, and then parted ways.


Wat Po, the reclining buddha's head

I was glad for the opp to get in some last-minute tourist stuff, but it was also nice to meet up with Jun and Bass again at the market for some shopping! I ended up having to skip the soccer game (there seems to be some confusion amongst the Thai with the words football, futbol and soccer), so I opted for a foot massage, some street-vendor Pad Thai, and called it a night.

It’s 6:30AM now and I’m off to the beach, but I’ll be back in Bangkok for a few hours tomorrow, so I’ll try to update.

Hope everyone is well!

    First off I’d like to take total blame for miss spelling Thailand. That silent H gets me everytime.

    Also I’d like to let you know that I’m almost as addicted to your blog as I am facebook… almost. I’m glad you’re able to keep us all updated, it’s great. Not only that but when your trip is over you’re going to have one hell of a virtual diary to look back through.

    Looking forward to Brynn takes on Bangkok and the Beach part II.

    Love you,

    P.S. Do you still have the money pouch?
