Some 20 hours of air travel later and I have found myself on the streets of Bangkok. I've forgotten the feeling of Southeast Asia...the smells of the street and the feeling of the humidity take me back to Semester At Sea. I'm glad to be back.
It is now time for Athena and I to really plan what we are doing for the next few months. There is much to talk about and information to gather before our next move. Sometimes it feels overwhelming, but then I remind myself that I'm on vacation, there are no deadlines or things we have to do...our time is our's to spend. That is a beautiful thing. For now we will take advantage of the nice hotel and rest ourselves.
