Stayed on 18th Floor This Slick Hotel Last Night

Going to be skipping around in time a bit here.

Impossible to find hotel in city, so ended up way out here at this “resort hotel” last night. Man! For someone living in a house built of recycled lumber, pretty exotic, eh? Been eating in restaurants where nary a gringo (farang) in sight. That’s the way I like it. Abalone soup for breakfast this morning. Hot pot lamb and spring rolls for dinner last night, along with v. high alcoholic Chinese beer. Wandering around in shiny mall-land this morning, these two very polite, very skinny boys said, Sir, can we take picture with phone? Guess I look pretty different in this locale. Tons of stuff to report, will do so when there’s time. Adventures every minute…
