Been hanging out in Kfar Saba with Eitan and his friends for the last couple days. It's been a good time, but nothing really eventful has happened. I was invited to his friend's brother's wedding tonight, but i'm not sure if I'll be able to go because my flight to Thailand is at 6:30 tomorrow morning in tel aviv. For the weddings here, instead of spending lots of money on a hotel and catering, they just invite the whole community and buy massive amounts of alcohol. The families invited about 2000 people and bought 400 cases of beer plus a lot of hard alcohol. Mostly, I want to go just to see all the Ethiopian shoulder dancing.

After 3 weeks in Israel, I'm a little sad to leave, but I did pretty much everything I wanted to do. Met a lot of new and interesting people and visited a lot of old friends. I think I'm ready to go though, and definitely ready for some warmer weather (90 degrees in Bangkok!). Also, I might try and leave the airport during my 10 hour layover in Addis. Not sure what i'll do with that time, maybe just wander around the city taking pictures.

Right now, our plan in Thailand is to stay in Bangkok for a couple days, then head by bus or train to Cambodia to visit Angkor Wat, stay there for 3 days, then either goto Thailand's islands or up up north to the mountains, but hopefully do both. As for Vietnam, I have no idea what i'm going to do there. I've talked to about 10 people who told me places to go in Thailand, and only one person who went to Vietnam. He basically told me not to go there because they're all theives. But I'm keeping my mind open.
