Ryan Joins the Journey

Ryan’s first time in Bangkok. My first time seeing someone familiar in more than six months. So much excitement, so many emotions. We spent the first few days traipsing around the seedier parts of Bangkok to indulge in some much needed celebratory hedonism. And then, a little bit of the usual: fruit markets, temples, tuk tuks, river boat rides, and grasshopper snacks. And a little bit of the unusual: Bangkok’s Forensic Museum, which displayed anatomical oddities, bone deformities, and babies with genetic disorders preserved in glass pools of formaldehyde. We loved it, we’re led around the museum by a pair of eager tour guides–two eight-year-old girls who took a liking to me the moment I revealed my knowledge of basic Thai. Oddly, they seemed just as thrilled about these misshapen cadavers as we were. We conversed in Thainglish and they held my hand as we raced around from corpse to skeleton.
