31 hours after leaving Megan's house in Georgia, we have arrived in Bangkok, Thailand!! Strange to think we left America at 5:00 am on December 27th and arrived here at 1:00 am on December 29th. To all of our friends and family back home, make December 28th a great day for us because we completely missed it :)
Thank you to Delta for three incredible flight experiences and a special shout out to the honey cafe au lait in the Tokyo airport and the Thai vanilla ice cream served right before our last flight landed. Going through customs and exchanging currency was a very smooth process. The airport is huge, but easy to navigate. We had a bit of confusion getting a taxi (note for future students: you have to walk out and to the right and wait in a long line for a taxi, you cannot approach them on the curb), but eventually figured it out. Tonight we are staying at the Grand FourWings Convention Hotel Bangkok. It is absolutely beautiful and the people thus far have been warm and welcoming. Tomorrow our taxi driver friend will bring us to Don Mueang Airport where we will catch our flight to the gorgeous beaches of Krabi. There, we stay at the Ao-Nang Silver Orchid Resort. We can't wait to post pictures of that trip!
Bedtime for now. ราตรีสวัสดิ์ [goodnight].
