Traveling to Bangkok, Thailand December 07, 2008 10:42
I have to admit that I was a little nervous with this whole concept of going to India. The travel, the food, the culture…it’s all a learning experience. I know it’ll be worth it when I stand in that village and dedicate a well on behalf of the Kauzbot Kommunity.
Right as I was getting used to the concept of sitting on a plane for an entire day, they told me I had to go through the scanner. Not the one for normal people…but the one for the carry-on luggage. Geez – what do these people think I am?
I laid in the little plastic tub and closed my eyes the entire way. They flashed some sort of light on me and took a picture, but I made it. And, I didn’t even faint! At the end of the tunnel, two nice ladies rubbed my back and made me feel alot better.
Everything was going pretty smooth until we had to hang out on the plane for 2 hours before we even got to take off. It was some sort of cargo issue I guess. I just listened to a little Jack Johnson and read the latest issue of Atomic Ranch…good stuff!
18 and a half hours is a long time to be sitting in one seat, so I got up and move around quite a bit. You’d think those people on the plane were staring at an alien. Geez! Haven’t they ever seen a robot have to stretch his legs a bit?
After landing, we took a shuttle to the Novotel Hotel where Thai Air graciously hooked us up with free accomodations because of a one day flight delay due to the Bangkok airport protesters. We enjoyed a great buffet dinner, called some friends back home, and hit the sack.
Stay tuned, and I’ll update you along the way. I also thought you’d enjoy a few photos from the day…
