As evidenced by the last few posts, I have been staying in Bangkok for several weeks now. After my time in Burma, I stopped briefly in Thailand before heading to Angkor Wat and Siem Reap. I wanted to compare the ruins of Angkor to those of Bagan before the vivid memories of those Burmese ruins faded. I have now been back in Bangkok since the beginning of March, with the goal of writing about Burma in mind. I was so inspired and moved and overwhelmed by the multitude of eye-opening experiences there that I wanted to stay put to capture it all. Fear not: this coverage is still coming. But upon arrival I quickly realized that Bangkok is not a city for the lethargic, and that it also attracts a varied group of intelligent, interesting people whose energy is infectious.
