This is just a small update to let everyone know I am alive :)

I have taken probably a thousand pictures already but I am using a hotel computer so I can't load any up right now. I went to the King's house/palace place yesterday, along with a few other temples and nice areas. Luckily it hasnt been too hot, it was actually hotter back in Japan. I guess I have gotten super comfortable in Japan without realizing it completely. Being here has brought back memories of how clueless and confused I used to be in Japanese daily life. Knowing 0 of the language sucks a lot lol. Anyways tomorrow I will be heading to the island for some beach life for a few days. I am really excited to get out of bangkok actually. I could never live here, not here in the heart of the city anyways. It is really intetresting to see, but it is so dirty, crowded, and chaotic. I would go insane lol. I will be going to a market today that is supposed to have a lot of things for good prices, so I am looking into picking up some cool souveneirs :) I really love the architecture and art though of all the temples. I find it more interesting than the Japanese temples. They are so colorful and full of gold, it is really beautiful. It sucks I can only show you guys pictures because it doesn't capture the size and feeling of actuually being here seeing it in person.

Food and other things are super super cheap. I went to a conbini last night for a few items and I picked up 2 bottles of coke, a liter of water, ice cream bar and a pack of pocky for about 3 dollars. I just ate a big plate of Phad Thai at the restaurant here in the hotel for about 3 dollars too, it would have been at least 10 back home, and probably 12-15 in Japan.

I take tuk tuk's and taxis about everywhere. You can ride in the taxi for like a good 10-15 minute drive for less than 2 bucks, so you cant beat it. The tuk tuk's are really fun, despite a lot of wind they are crazy and sometimes scary, but it's all part of the experience I think :)

As for the format of the blog is it too big for everyone? I don't want you all to have to scroll side to side, because I hate doing that too, but the way it is know it fits perfectly on my computer. Especially you guys mom and dad, y'all have a much bigger monitor with higher resolution so I can't imagine why you would have to scroll side to side. Anyways everyone just let me know and I will try to modify it the best I can.

Hopefully I can post some pics when I get to my hotel in Phuket, I think I will have wifi in my room there which would allow me to use my on computer ^^
