My new home

After 20 hours of flying, I arrived in Bangkok late last night, mind racing and eyes burning from jet lag. I am in a constant state of flux between exhilaration and delirium. I have only been sleeping about 2 hours a night since Monday, but it doesn’t seem important. Exploring this new city is my only priority. In the few short hours I’ve been here, I have successfully haggled for a cab (and been rewarded for my tenacity with a head pat by my cab driver), staved off a marriage proposal, and been invited to stay with a new friend in Vietnam. At the Nappark Hostel where I am staying, I met Melanie for the first time and we talked like old friends. Her laugh brought be back to life. This afternoon we have plans for breakfast and a boat ride.

New home, new life, new me. Or maybe the same me. We shall see.
