Lurking in the corner, the Vancouver mainstay rainboots called out, their voices amplified by the very raining Friday. Headlines on the Thailand flooding are hard to miss but its difficult to get an understanding of how the first stop on our journey will be impacted. Obviously we can’t control the weather (unless you are the Chinese government a la 2008 Olympics) so no point in fretting. Rainboots, sorry we will not miss you, you’ll get your time when I’m back in February and you wouldn’t enjoy the cramped quarters in our backpacks anyways.




Update: so we’ve landed in Bangkok and the only sign of any water is the sandbags in front of some businesses at our hostel. Stay tuned…
