We're in Bangkok(Thailand) now and have free wifi at the hotel, so I thought I'd take a minute to update you all.
We've been here a total of 24 hours, having arrived in the morning on an overnight train from the south. We had hoped to be heading further north this evening, but due to flooding, the trains weren't running yesterday or today... We'll check back today about possibly going tomorrow, but if not, we may have to take a bus, or change our plans. The train offers a sleeper, which is much nicer on an overnight trip than a bus seat - or a regular train seat as we found out a few days ago. Traveling overnight, we don't want to lose sleep then lose a whole day of seeing things because we're catching up.
For those following the weather, it looks like we're out of the path of Typhoon Megi, but we'll keep you updated if our travel plans change. Our prayers are with those in the path of the storm - the damage we've seen from previous storms is devastating and can take years to rebuild.
Until next time...
