So I spent the last week seeing the sights that Bangkok has to offer. There are many many amazing temples, and the architecture is different from western style, but also Chinese style. The one bad thing about the temples or other tourist sights is they are jam packed with tourists. So I did the major sights, but I really lucked out because I’m staying with our former exchange student, Jew and she was able to give me a tour of Thailand that only a native could. We have been eating street food… My favorite is grilled pork skewers with sticky rice, or anything covered in coconut milk. We also went bike riding in the park, and I saw a 3 foot lizard on the side of the road!!!!
Now I’m on Phuket, which is an island off the western coast of southern Thailand, in the adaman sea. It’s beach time!!!! We flew in tonight, so tomorrow the exploring begins!
Lots of love, Ash
