Thirty hours from our bed in Gabriola to our bed in Bangkok. We are adjusting to Asian life: the heat - thirty degrees+; the air scented by jasmine, deep frying and sewers; the sights of monks, tourists and prostitutes. Jim has been tempted by offers of 4 complete tailored outfits; suits, shirts, ties etc. for $99 US, while I'm attracted by Thai massages and eyebrow tinting. We were feeling adventurous until we met a couple our age from Whistler BC at the start of a 4 month tour on a tandem. Train for us - we're doing it the easy way. Tomorrow the ancient Thai capital- Ayuthaya.
