Murmeli goes India

An AIESEC traineeship in Hyderabad, India

On vacation in Thailand

I am currently on vacation in Thailand. We flew to Bangkok on Saturday and stayed there for two nights near the famous backpacker heaven, Kaosan Road. We left Bangkok yesterday and came to Kanchangaburi. We stayed on the River Kwai (famous from the movie, which – ironically – was filmed entirely in Sri Lanka, by the way) in a bungalow which was literally on the river, floating. The place was beautiful and peacefull. I stayed up until 0.30 last night just sitting outside the bungalow listening to the crickets and the water. Today we did a tour trip to Erawan national park. We had a swim in the beautiful waterfalls and it was excellent! Today it has been raining a little (after the elephant ride and the Death Railway it rained a lot) but I hope it won’t rain anymore tomorrow when we go to the Ko Tao island in Southern Thailand.

This was just a brief update on the situation. To sum it all up, I’m having a great time in a great company right now. And, would you believe it, I’m actually missing some things about India here 🙂 For example the tens of waiters in each restaurant that are always at your service. It does not happen here, surprisingly.

This Internet place is closing up soon, so I gotta go. I wrote this really hastily, so sorry about any typos. And we are now in Banpong, by the way, which is just a railway hub on the Bangkok-Southern Thailand route. The train leaves at around midnight, so we still have some time to kill. Anyways, until the next posting, bye bye!

PS. Lots of hugs to Jaana, who has just returned back to Finland from Jaipur! Do not forget to have an amazing house warming party!
