Well, we made it to Thailand folks. We arrived a little over a week ago, and are now on the island of Koh Lanta, where we’ll be for another week. Jonah got his scuba certification (yay!) and we spent the last two days on a boat for 9 hours, diving and eating and relaxing.
But let’s talk about the food, shall we? We spent our first two days in Bangkok getting over our jet lag and catching up on work after 24 hours “out of the office.” The jet lag hit us both in a way that it never had before – our appetites were all out of whack. We would be hungry, then go find some food, eat a few bites, and then feel ill. And no, it wasn’t the state of the food we were eating. Our bodies were just so confused about the time and the lack of sleep and the heat and humidity, everything was off.
By the time we arrived in Koh Lanta on Saturday we were both starting to feel a little normal again, finally. We had a small lunch, but at dinner we went crazy and stuffed ourselves. Was it the smartest thing we’d done? No. But it tasted damn good.
