After 22 hours of flight/layover I made it to Thailand! The "Convenient Resort" is not living up to the hype of the website but there is a bed and water and internet (barely). That's a girl truly needs. It's 3 a.m. and I'm exhausted but excited to see Bangkok tomorrow in the light!
*Edit: I have a friend living in the room with me. He is a Salamander, I think. Whatevs I've nicknamed him "Sal" and warned him that if there is any funny business tonight, he's out!
