Here I am in Asia! I’m still in Thailand now; I’ve been here for two weeks already. I went to an island in the south called Phuket for a little over a week. It has really great beaches. I spent my days lying on the beach and my nights drinking beer and watching videos in the bars. After that I came back here to Bangkok. It’s crowded and polluted, but there are some really interesting temples and palaces. I’ve never seen anything like them. One has a two-ton Buddha made of solid gold!
Yesterday I took a day trip to Ayuthaya, the former capital. It has some incredible ruined temples. I’m getting ready to fly to Nepal next week; my next letter will probably be from there. If you write to me, send your letters to me poste restante at the Bangkok General Post Office. I’ll pick them up when I get back to Thailand at the end of next month.
