My very first Thai meal, hot spicy seafood salad, not very nice!

So, I arrived last night. Was a stupidly long flight followed by 3 hours stuck in the craziest traffic you've ever seen. Didn't sleep on the plane so was absolutely exhausted but still didn't sleep until about 5am local time. Was a bit upset and homesick last night but I consoled myself with my book (Yes Man by Danny Wallace, really good read!) until everyone in the dorm was asleep so I went back to bed.

Feeling much better today; its hot but not too hot and I've got my train ticket for Chiang Mai. Will be heading there on the 26th now, shall do Ayutthaya at some other time. Also went to a park and met a random Thai guy who wanted to practice his English, helped me with my Thai pronunciation and seemed to know far too much about Cliff Richard. Worrying!

I'm now back at the hostel relaxing with my next book (One about two girls who took a massive journey in a Tuk Tuk dubbed Ting Tong. Fair enough). Haven't really eaten any proper Thai food yet, just some green pea-flavoured crisps which were actually rather tasty. But I'll probably get something tonight, there's 'hawker' stalls everywhere selling all sorts of curries and noodles and stuff.

So that's me. I'm fine. Will post again when in Chiang Mai.
