As you may have deduced, I am no longer living in Thailand. You may have come to the conclusion that I was kidnapped, lost in the jungle, or ended up in a Thai jail after a Brokedown Palace moment, but I assure you it was nothing that scandalous, glamorous, or exciting. I just simply came back to California. I spent a little more than a year in Thailand and I don't think I even had the opportunity to scratch the surface of my experiences there on this blog ,mainly because there was very little access to convenient, fast, and *quiet* internet. Luckily, I had my handy dandy camera to document many of my adventures and now that I have an internet connection that is faster than 8k I will upload them here for your viewing pleasure.

The trip was overall a good experience. I got to see and do a lot of things that I never thought I would have the opportunity to do. Life was relatively uncomplicated and simple unlike life in the U.S. I'm not going to lie and say that it wasn't a challenge. Food, communication barriers, and home sickness did pose some problems but it was a learning experience that I would never give back. I learned some Thai, made some friends, and saw lots of really cool and interesting things. Here is just a small sampling of my time in Thailand. Enjoy!
