First week in Thailand and feels like a lifetime. Everything is different and unexpected. Took us a while to grasp how this place works and avoid to be cheated in every corner, so we hope. Besides of that sightseeing is quite rewarding as there is amazing places to see. Food is really good although half of the time we don't know what we are eating. Might be as well that we eat in all the cheap corners were they barely speak english. All in all it is going well and we everyday feel better.

Primera semana en Tailandia y se siente como toda una vida. Todo es diferente e inesperado. Nos llevó un tiempo comprender cómo este lugar funciona y evitar ser engañado en cada esquina, eso espero. Hemos visitado varios lugares y realmente merece la pena. La comida es buena y barata, aunque la mitad de las veces no sabemos lo que es, sera porque comemos en los sitios mas baratos que no hablan ingles. Cada dia nos sentimos mejor aqui y ahora vamos al Norte the tailandia. Veremos....

No wiec pierwszy tydzien za nami, w szalonym Bangkoku, gdzIe ulice zmieniaja swoje oblicze w zaleznosci od pory dnia! Jest bardzo bardzo goraco, nigdy czegos takiego nie przezyliSmy! Poznajemy coraz to nowe etapy pocenia sie! I pomalu aklimatyzujemy do zupelnie innej kultury. Ciezko w kilku slowach ujac roznorodnosc wrazen i doswiadczen oral opisac cos tak innego od tego, co znamy.
