Destination: Home (via the other side of the world) Circumnavigating the globe (very quickly)


THAILAND | Wednesday, 14 May 2008 | Views [520]

Everything has been an effort today. Jetlagged and really feeling it. Managed to get myself out of bed at a decent time, but have been a bit zombie-like all day. (N.B. Thailand is GMT+7hrs)

Didn't help that I was lugging my rucksack around the city all day. I decided to check out of my cheap hostel and find somewhere more convenient for my plans tomorrow.

The weather has also been a bit crazy today. It keeps vacillating between blue skies + sun and overcast + downpours. Fortunately, even when it rains I do not need to put my waterproofs on because it is still quite hot + humid, so the rain is quite refreshing and dries quickly.

After breakfast, I went to the National Museum to try to absorb some culture. I missed the English tour at 9.30 because I was so tired this morning. And although I am happy that I went, I could not read much of the commentary because I was so tired.

My jet-laggedness (if that is a word) also meant that i was too tired to make the effort to chat to anyone today. There were many opportunities, but I enjoyed my seclusion and withdrew into my sketchbook for the day.

So I'm now checked into Joe's Place Hostel tonight, which is slightly closer to the places I want to visit tmrw. I am quite intent on picking up the pace tmrw. But right now, need sleep (I was falling asleep during my meal!)
