One night in Bangkok

Arrived at last. Took me 5 days in total to get to Vientiane (left Monday evening and got to Vientiane Friday afternoon).

The heat is really going to take awhile to get used to. It almost feels like a wall when you walk outside and the air is thick from all the humidity.

Bangkok is unbelievably intense. Just walking down the street there are so many more things to see, hear, and smell. It’s very crowded too and sometimes can feel a little bit claustrophobic.

After spending the night in Bangkok Hamid and I left on the overnight train to Nong Khai (on the Thai-Lao border) where Khamla from the CUSO Lao office met us and drove us to Vientiane.

Other than that, I’ve mostly just been trying to get over the jet lag and get used to the heat.
