Off again!

After a day of rest I realize how much my unsuccessful trip took out of me. I think I just felt so much disappointment because I had such high expectations in the beginning. Being in Bangkok has refreshed me and I feel more then ready to jump back into my project. It’s going to be hard to settle in for the first day especially because I had to speak English the whole time I was in Isan seeing as the guy wanted his kid to pick it from me. My Thai is beyond rusty. I’m a little concerned that they will be disappointed with my comprehension, but hopefully it won’t be too bad.
There’s so much that I want to learn while I’m there, including how to make tofu. It seems like a neat process and not that difficult to learn. I can’t wait to get out into the gardens and see what its all about.
For the moment though, I am just happy that I will be picking up my clean laundry in half an hour, my first truly clean clothes since I began the trip, and boy were they smelly. Bangkok used to be so unsettling to me because of all the activity but I’m starting to find some comfort in its familiarity now that I’ve been here a bunch of times and find comfort in my ability to get places on my own.
Well off for more adventures and more excitement for my blogging!

ok- I had trouble figuring this blog thing out, and I though I made the same comment twice, so i erased my own comment=( I had said that I hope you accomplish what you set out to do for your research, and everything else, during this next part of the trip, and that I admire your ability to make the best out of every situation=)
