Friday 10.9.15: It’s almost the end of orientation and we’re on our toes. All kind of tired feeling, but also just ready to get out for the weekend. Don’t get me wrong, we had a good last presenter and we were getting out at 2:30p instead of 4p. Still, Friday, end of the “work week” … we all wanted out. Once we were out we were told to meet by 3:15p sharp downstairs all ready to take taxis to the bus station.
*Taxi ride: I was mostly joking, but I told my friend Crystal to stand in the back and to let me call the taxi since we didn’t have the best of luck when she would try (she was great trust me taxi guys are just lazy here). Point is: I get one and he says yes on the first try! *LEVEL UP. The ride was about 45mins long because of traffic… L.A. folks it’s worse here.. =/ Regardless we got a good deal compared to most of the other groups. This is the craziness you see as a passenger… Tall person perks: shot gun. *We get to the bus station and go to 7/11,… (Remind me to make an ode to 7/11 they’re EVERYWHERE) get food, and our bus ticket to Kanchanaburi: about North West from Bangkok.
Then it was time to go home and be squished sardines! …I felt bad for the guys standing the whole time.
This was a great trip and would do it again! VN Guesthouse (place we stayed at) was quite comfortable in terms of service and safety… lack of ac and hostel beds: inevitable for cheap travel.
Till next time, Elaine ❤
