Arriving in Bangkok

imgp2891After 12 hours of being pampered on Thai Air, we have arrived in Bangkok. The flight went by very quickly as we were entertained by many movie options from “Casbalanca” to “Ghost Town” to a Thai movie about a tug of war competition (a personal favorite). There were also over 30 TV show options, music, and classic gameboy video games as well as live video feed from the underside of the plane. Going from tramping in the woods, this was somewhat of a media overload, but we didn’t mind something to keep us occupied while we tried to stay awake. We arrived at 9:30pm (3:30am Auckland time) and were quickly through immigration, customs, and greeted by our shuttle driver who would take us to the Convenient Hotel. We quickly fell into bed exhausted from the long flight and late night. This morning we got up and had our first meal which was, unfortunately, an American breakfast. We are now taking on the city. Just ate our first pad thai (we know, real creative, but you have to start with imgp2888what you know) for less than $1 USD from a street vendor. Checking out the city now. Tomorrow we have plans to meet up with the Bauer family, friends of Tim Hyatt, at an outdoor market that sounds like Saturday Market on steroids.

Bangkok is a huge and busy city, but we are finding our way around just fine and getting adjusted to the heat!
