We are in Bangkok now and all is well. We had slightly interesting time trying to find our guesthouse on the first night, I called ferom sydney to book a room which was fine but when we tried to find the place it turned out there were 4 hotels with the same name and none of them had a clue who we were! we got a room in one of them though so that was all good. We are staying in a lovely place now with a swimming pool and things which is very refreshing after walking in the 34C city. It is very hot and very different here (except that it still rains a bit, we take it with us it makes us feel comfortable!), very cheap for everything which is great. all our meals cost about 30p! we are eating lovely pad thai noodles, firey red curries and really sweet fresh pineapple and stuff it is brilliant. We are off to an island called Koh Tao to learn to dive tomorrow on an overnight sleeper train that will get us to almost there at 4am, the first ferry doesn't leave till 7:30am so we have to stand in the dark for a few hours under a big roof apparently!
Lots of love
Dan and Jenni
