After 22 hours in the air, about 5 hours of layovers, and a 30 minute cab ride where the driver got lost twice, finally got to my hotel and checked in. Both long flights were in older planes, pretty cramped and bad TVs. The flight from Chicago to Tokyo was 14hours and I was sitting next to a Taiwanese lady (half the flight was continuing onto Taiwan). Spoke to her for about 4 hours in Mandarin...was the first time i've used my chinese in about 6 months, good to know i can still keep up. all the old taiwanese ladies were very impressed :-) We flew over alaska and there were some amazing views going through the mountains. the flight from tokyo to bangkok was very cramped, but I slept through most of it.

Enjoying the familiar smells of thailand, looking forward to some good food tomorrow. it's 1am here but i'm wide awake...going to take a sleeping pill and try to get adjusted to local time.
