Weekend Market

Today we went to the weekend market, which is basically a sprawling mess of little shops stuffed to the brim with merchandise, and people. The shops seem to go on forever, and there is no way to find a shop once you have moved on.

This man was at the market talking nonstop into his megaphone in Thai… sure wish I could understand what he was saying.

  1. youuuuuu guys!!! dan you are hilairious with your descriptions. looks like you both are having an amazing time. how’s the culture shock? if any? is everything ridiculously cheap? what is 10 bhat for a tuk tuk ride? have you been worshipped yet? is it humid? have you guys seen ridiculously huge cock.. roaches? did you scream?

    so, when you are on the computer updating your journal, what the heck is breanne doing? shopping? eating? picking her nose?

    i miss you guys a lot! we all send our love to you!

  2. I was in Thailand last summer. Beautiful country and every thing is cheap. If you are going to the south, just be careful because of the Islamic militancy there, otherwise thailand is relatively safe and friendly. Have fun:)

  3. how’s the culture shock? if any?

    the culture shock is not nearly as much as I was expecting, in fact Bangkok reminds me a lot of Mexico, (some Thais even look like Mexicans)

    is everything ridiculously cheap?

    Yes everything is very cheap, I think later I will eat some Pad Thai, which should cost about 20 Bhat, or about $0.50US

    what is 10 bhat for a tuk tuk ride?

    Tuk Tuks are small open air motorized taxis, and 10 Bhat is about 0.25US

    have you been worshipped yet?

    not yet, but here in Bangkok there are to many tourists so we are not much of an oddity, I was however blessed by a Buddhist monk during a parade a few days ago

    is it humid?

    yes, it is way to humid!

    have you guys seen ridiculously huge cock.. roaches?

    not yet, but I did see some BBQ grasshoppers the other night, I will have to try some one of these days

    did you scream?

    I don;t think I will, I have seen them before, and I did not scream then

    so, when you are on the computer updating your journal, what the heck is breanne doing? shopping? eating? picking her nose?

    she is here next to me updating her journal you should read it @ http://breannesadventures.blogspot.com/
