Journal Entry:
I got up at four and was at the airport by five. The flight to Taipei was only long because I was so tired and couldn't sleep. The wait in Taipei was just over an hour - much nicer than the last time through. The flight to Bangkok was easy and not to long. We landed around noon. Everything went smooth and by 1:30 I was checking in to the Shanti Lodge - much earlier than I had expected. After dumping my gear I decided against taking a nap and walked to Khao San road (for the last time) to find out if I'd gotten my flight back on the 3rd. At the travel agent I found out that I hadn't, instead they got me a flight back on the 2nd. Which was even better, but I freaked out a bit when I realized I'd be home in two days. I wandered around Khao San relishing the crowds that just a bit earlier had been so annoying. I bought some knock-off sunglasses and then a snap clip for my sandals. I've been trying to find a replacement to fix my sandals for for six months - figures I'd finally fix them a day before going home!

Back at the Shanti I checked email, then went in to get some Thai food. In the restaurant I ran into Kelly and her friend Christa who I had hung out with a month ago when I was in Bangkok. I sat up with them and had diner and several margaritas until late.
