Journal Entry:
Slept in then took a nice long hot shower. Caught a taxi to the airport (by this time I didn't have enough time to try a bus. At the airport bought a book by a local author and then boarded the plane. In Bangkok I took a taxi to the Shanti Lodge - same place I've stayed before. When checking in I noticed that Stacy is here - back from Indonesia. Spent a half hour on the internet then sat down to a very early diner. Stacy walked by a little later and we traded dive stories for a couple hours. I tried to call my parents as they should be in Bangkok, but was unable to get hold of them - I tried to leave a message, but I'm not sure I was successful. Around seven I went with Stacy to a book store down town (taxi then sky train). Since we were so near my parents hotel I tried to call them again, but failed again. I was getting hungry again so we had a later dinner at Pizza Hut (what a waste of stomach space in Thailand, but there wasn't a lot else open that late).
