Good Morning Thailand

We are here and loving it so far. We arrived Saturday night at 11pm. We stayed at a hotel near the airport our first night and traveled to our hotel in Ayutthaya this afternoon. Our first hotel was beautiful and we enjoyed a nice buffet lunch that included frog legs, fruit that we didn't know the name of, and other Thai dishes.

Our second hotel is where we will spend the rest of the week. By the time we got settled we walked across the street to a mall. In the basement was a supermarket that we ended up eating dinner at. We ended up getting 3 dishes to share between the two of us, plus a beer for a total of $4. For my meal I had Som Tom (fresh papaya salad with fish) made with only 1 of the 4 Thai red peppers that lady wanted to put in it. For me it was perfect. Greg got the help from a local that wanted to help and ended up with 2 Pad Thai dishes. We ended the day with a swim on the roof top pool with the many lizards on the walls around us. Welcome to Thailand.
