Arrived in Bangkok last night in the rain, which then turned into a thunderstorm, so it was a bit of a relief seeing the sun today!
Bangkok is awesome, the atmosphere is fab, it's so cheap and the shopping is brilliant. I'm in my element! Last night we just wandered down the streets through all of the little stalls after meeting Rach, it was a real eye opener!
Today we are just wandering, shopping and hoping to see the Grand palace and either the sitting, standing or sleeping buddha!
We meet our group tonight, which is quite exciting and then head up to Chiang Mai and the villages tomorrow night - to get more sun, I can't wait.
Met the group saturday night, and it was all girls and they were all lovely. Sunday daytime we pottered around Bangkok and visited Wat Po and the Grand Palace, then headed back to the hotel where we got a lift to the overnight train to Chiang Mai for the hilltribe trek!
