And it was Morning, and it was Evening, the first Day!
Hi Everyone, this is my first post of my first day in Thailand. The Lord was gracious in my journey over here, as there were a flew delays in Boston and JFK but, I made all my connections and the flights were generally smooth. I arrived at my hotel in Bangkok around 8 p.m. in the evening and needed some sleep (I hadn't slept for about 2 days by then). Thankfully, my luggage made it here with me, and all in one piece too! The jet lag is making its presence known about now, but the stress of the last 4 weeks helps to sleep just about any time. My residence for the first couple of weeks will be here at Chawamit Place Hotel on Lat Phrau Rd. I was fortunate to get wifi in my room and the AC works great (it was 94 degrees today) but is a welcome change from the long New England winter. I started practicing my Thai with the Rosetta Stone software that George Trainor bought me and it is really helpful. They call it dynamic immersion. It would be very helpful to work with someone who knows both languages so that I could ask questions. Thank you again for all of the prayer support and encouragement!
