I have arrived!
After a 2 hour delay in Cape Town and another 6 hour delay in Dubai, running around the Bangkok airport like a crazy person, being chased down by a soldier, making it through the foreign passport terminal, looking for my suitcase in tears, seeing Bangkok for the first time in the dark and then the real Bangkok the next day – I will admit, it’s been an experience worthy of an award.
First off, it’s extremely hot! There are loads of people, unfamiliar smells, noises, people and more people… this is completely different from what I know and arriving alone is a little daunting. Never the less, I am here on an adventure of a lifetime and can’t seem to stop taking photos. I am overwhelmed by Thailands buzzing city life and beautiful nature, but am also saddened by some living conditions.
