I have officially spent one week in Bangkok, Thailand! The past week has been crazy busy! The city itself is insane. The streets are always full of cars and people, and the city is always alive. We had a team amazing race scavenger hunt around the city a few days ago which was an awesome way to learn about the city and how to get around. A few days ago we took a boat ride on the Chao Phrya river which was amazing. It was great to see the river parts of Bangkok. On this trip we visited the Temple of the Dawn which was incredible. We also had the chance to visit the Royal Barge Museum as well as the Grand Palace which is home to the Emerald Buddha.
We finally started Thai language class as well as our other two classes as well. Thai is a difficult language to learn but so far it has been super fun!
Tomorrow we leave Bangkok and head up to Chang Mai in northern Thailand! My next posts will be from there.
