Our final day has come. While I was packing, Fierce picked up the hotel phone and said, "Sawat De Kah" as if he was talking to someone. This means "Hello" in Thai...I guess he was paying attention this week! I know he picked up on the fact that people were not speaking his language quite… Continue reading Sawat Di Kah & Goodbye

It was strong, black like coal and doused with sweetened condensed milk...wow...good!… Continue reading Bangkok Exploration Day 2
