Playing Catch-Up

So, a lot has happened since I left India, and this is a brief overview to get caught up to today. I left India a week earlier than I had planned and flew back to Bangkok – mostly because things had gone sour in Delhi (can’t stand the place), and then I missed my train out of Delhi. At that…

Site Changes

Ok, it’s been far too long since my last post, and so so much has happened since I left Hardiwar. But this isn’t a catch up post, that will come soon. This is just a quick update to say that, first, I’ve made it back safely to Thailand, where it’s beautiful, and not even all that hot – only 33c…

Quick Update – BKK

Anyways, I’ve had a great time here, even though it started off rough. The first night I got to Bangkok, I went out on the town, and ended up losing…

Bangkok Baby!

I’m out of Nepal. The strike was canceled, so it was no problem getting to the airport today. First impression of Bangkok: my God, it’s so clean! No piles of burning garbage on the sides of the roads? No cows in the streets eating from the piles of garbage that haven’t been set on fire yet? It’s fantastic! After walking…
