Challenges are what make life itneresting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful. – Joshua J. Marine
My first day in Bangkok, and I can’t help taking in everything around me–the sights, the smells, the sounds, the complete opposite culture of what I have been used to in Latin America as well as growing up in the States. It’s incredible. This afternoon a small group of us decide to explore the city. I am still recovering from my massive jet lag, but I think the endorphins I’m feeling is keeping me going. We start out by taking the BTS train line to the MRT and get off at Pier 1 where we take the local river boat for less than .50 cents to Pier 8 to visit our first stop, Wat Po, a buddhist monastery. After fighting the heat we decide to have lunch at the Chibad House, which is nearby the infamous Khaosan Road.
