Thailand, For my mind.

I december 2007, I ventured off on a journey. For the first time, I was going to Asia. Home of many of my friends, The land from where so many of my favorite things to eat came from. Thailand, What is it about this place that attracts so many people from all over the world. Finally, it was time for me to find out.

This was my first and last blog post while I was traveling.

I am currently in Bangkok - Thailand.

I am half way up a large city building/Shopping mall by the Phrong Phong BTS(Sky train) station. My sweet great friend P'Kob has a pretty sweet job in this building and I got hooked up with some wireless internet access. I am just trying to plan the next section of my trip.

Interesting is the divide of local cultures in this big city. If you are on any floor above the sky train you see nothing but a major city that could be located anywhere in the world. But, this is Bangkok and one you de-escalate below the third floor of anywhere in this city you will see a whole different environment. You will see street vendors, tuktuk taxies, food stands galore covering three forth’s of the sidewalk. You will see smiling faces, the face of those who need, sleeping dogs and sleeping cats.
