Moments from Thailand

It feels like an eternity since the last chance I had to post an update. But Bangkok has been one of the most exhausting cities I have ever visited. As I have told so many people - I get exhausted standing still in this city. Almost every single moment you are assaulted with noise, pollution, and a frenzy of people trying to get somewhere else. But amid the kind of chaos that makes Arin and I want to run screaming from this city are sights, sounds, smells, ad tastes that also make it difficult to leave.

I suppose Bangkok has also been difficult due to horrible news that a very close family member has passed away. This coupled with just how much work it takes mentally to be a tourist in this city has left Arin and I exhausted more than anything.


To top it all off, just two days into Bangkok, my camera broke, which required a frantic search for a new camera, as one of the things I have enjoyed more than anything else has been taking pictures of the many wonderful things I have seen.

I think the best way to impress upon everyone the kind of wonder that Arin and I have experienced is to share with you some of the best photos that I feel I have taken so far. These photos do not necessarily represent the best moments or experiences of the trip, as many of those moments could never be captured by a camera.
