3. these croaking frogs are killin' me...
2. if the rest of thailand is like this, i'm going to have a swell time here.
1. where are all the thai people... ?

ed. notes.
1. for my loyal readers in calgary, khao san rd. to bangkok is 17th ave to calgary except in this case khao san rd. is 17th on 'roids, crack, and amphetamines. to my other loyal readers, khao san is the centre of the backpacker universe, a never never land for travelers (well for some of them).

2. i haven't been here on khao san in 7 years. nothing has changed except for the frog ladies and the presence of bar girls on the pavement.

3. i'm off to the thailand vs. australia asia cup game tomorrow. wahoo. i'm going with a brazilian girl and a guy from the land o' oz. hope to see some football hooligans, eh.

4. i wanna go home.

Hey Allen, how u doin? its jason.

Great to see that you continued your journey, and thailand sounds like a pretty cool place, I see you went straight into the heart of the madness, nice1! whats the vibe like over there, lookin kinda crazy from your pics

Im not one to talk when it comes to updating blogs, but, hey update your blog dude!!!!!!!

Anyhoo, i look forward to readin your next post, lata

O, just to add to what wasta said, watch out for the shoulders and the jaw aswell, and apparantly the length between the shoulder and the elbow is much longer in men, i dont know if you are used to carrying around a tape measure, but you might consider it worth your while to invest in one, better to be safe than sorry, ha ha
