It still makes me a little nervous because I'm not 100% positive that I'm doing everything right. It also doesn't help that there's been so much political unrest in Bangkok lately. A couple of weeks ago my friend Jordan told me he hopes the government doesn't collapse while I'm there. EEK! Thanks for the comfort pal ;) Anyway, from everything I've read, it seems like it hasn't been a big problem for tourists. I'm not too worried about it. I just have to make sure I register with the US Embassy when I get there.
I also thought I'd excite you all with some pictures of where I'll be staying. Unfortunately, it's been hard to find pics that I could copy and paste. So you won't get to see where I'm going to live, but, courtesy of my fb pals who've already been there, you'll get to some some places that I will be working.
This is a nearby waterfall. Pretty much Thailand is the most beautiful place on earth.
And this these two are pics of a village where I'll be teaching.
