Wat Thai of Los Angeles

In my post last year, I talked about Wat Thai of Los Angeles - the biggest Thai temple in the United States! Well, last summer, July - August, I went on a 6 week road trip with a couple of friends and convinced them to make a stop at this temple! It was a sweaty, hot day and it reminded me of the sweaty, hot days I lived in Thailand. There is also a food market on the grounds that has Thai iced tea and all sorts of other goods - I didn't see any roti, though!

And then across the street, we went to Pratanum Market where I stocked up on goodies!

I'm comin' back!

Dear friends and readers!

First off, I have had 99 hits to my blog in the first 10 days of February! How is this possible? I am not sure, but I thank you all!

Secondly, it is my pleasure to report my return to Southeast Asia and specifically Thailand in May! Yes, indeed, good ol' me purchased a ticket today to leave good ol' New York City on May 4th and arrive in Bangkok on May 6th (at 1am - kind of blows)! Hoorah! Hoorah!

There will basically be no time in between the end of my spring semester (and first year of graduate school!) and my flight, but that's a good thing. There isn't much for me to do or look forward to in New York once the term is over anyway.

On my Southeast Asian agenda:
- Koh Tao where I will finally learn to Scuba Dive with Astrid (of Chiang Mai fame).
- Railay Beach where I will hopefully take a few days worth of rock climbing courses. (Remember my favorite place in the world?)
- Nong Khai to visit my Openmind peeps!
- Krabi Town to visit my other…
