and in the beginning

my arrival into bangkok was as smooth as an international arrival could be - the flight pleasant, immigration was cake...and i got to khao san road easily by public transport. and it was on that little mini bus that i was able to take a deep breath, or maybe let one out - i felt as if i hadbn't breathed properly in nearly three weeks... maybe it had something to do with my last minute everything, or maybe that was just the steady haze that hangs over busan.
khao san road was everything i had anticipated - but the sellers of virtually anything you could ever want to buy were much less aggressive than i expected and the tourists seedier than i usually prefer. in places known to be hubs of the gringo trail, its so easy to differentiate the travelers from the tourists.
booked an overnight bus to krabi for about $12... there are things i want to see in bangkok, and i will save a day or two at the end of my thailand leg, but i was absolutely aching for turquoise waters and shoeless feet...
