It's 1:30am here on the 17th...can't sleep so I thought I'd head over here to a net cafe to make some preparations for the next couple stops. I'm still staying at the same hotel that I arrived at since I spend so little time in my room. It's as cheap as it gets here in Taipei (short of a youth hostel), it surprisingly has a ton of good movie channels and CNN on the tiny TV in the room, and it's clean enough to sleep and bathe. I'm comfortable, and I'm saving a bunch of money. I've got my pics and movies on to my laptop and I'll be uploading them as soon as possible. I really think the images of Ayutthaya are spectacular, I will be taking many more when I return there. I still haven't visited half of the temples and ruins...I did rent a golf cart to explore Bang Pa-In palace which was used primarily by King Rama V and King Rama VI and is still used occasionally by the current King of Thailand, King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX).
