Last night in Bangkok

I'm trying to think of some profound closing thoughts.. .but it just isn't happening.

I stayed in Ban Phe for a couple days, got my things, closed out my bank account, mailed yet another package back to the states, and even had a bit of time on the beach. Now I'm in Bangkok... did a little last minute souvenir shopping (because I really needed more scarves??) and have just been chilling out. I walked around China Town today, all through some narrow market streets, but honestly I'm all market-ed out.

Marie is living in Bangkok now, going to University, so I'll get dinner with her tonight. Then I need to get up at o'dark thirty for what looks like a 2 hour flight to San Francisco. We take off at 6am local time on Thursday 11/12/09 , and land at 8am local time on Thursday 11/12/09. Somehow I think it's going to feel like a bit more than 2 hours. =P

It's all just beyond surreal that this long strange trip is ending. It'll be tough to get back to my 'normal' life again.

Remember how long it took you to get used to Thai life? I imagine that's what it will be like coming home--just with the advantage of things being a bit more familiar.

Have a safe trip home and let us know when you get here!

Welcome home! It'll be interesting to hear your reactions to life at home.
