I lucked out. Even though I slept around 9 hours on the flights here when I got back to my friend’s house last night at midnight I fell right asleep until 6 a.m. without a problem. I am telling myself that I have skipped out on the whole jet lag thing because somehow I feel great.
I really tried hard to run outside but the humidity and heat almost killed me off. I made it 3 miles this morning at about a 9 min/mile pace and then decided that the treadmill is going to be the best option for me while I am here.
3 miles outside and 7k on the treadmill… so a little more than 7 miles?!
Just my breakfast alone made me decide that Brooke and I are coming back to Thailand for an extended time (or maybe we should just move here;) to stay with my friends in a few months.
Croissant + chocolate in the middle + candied almonds. It was also straight out of the oven. Just FYI… one of my favorite parts about traveling is the food. Each post will probably contain 300 pictures of food.
After bfast we went to the Chatuchak outdoor market… Oh ya know—> just the world’s largest weekend market! It was insane. I could have spent 15 hours walking around and I still wouldn’t have seen everything (maybe an exaggeration but still). Over 35 acres, 15,000 stalls and around 200,000 visitors each day.
We had mango and watermelon smoothies (straight from heaven, I swear) while we walked around.
And pineapple that tasted like candy.
And Brooke is going to look so cute in these finds:
The real deal Thai food.
And the most amazing coconut soup I have ever had.
PS Don’t worry, I am still able to get my diet coke fix here. What a relief, I know you were all concerned.
Have a great ‘whatever day it is for you because this time change has me really confused’ day!
