Welcome to Bangkok
Traveling from Cambodia to Thailand was very easy, just a quick 1-hour flight on Air Asia. Everything was great, except one major problem — Linley got food poisoning on our last day in Cambodia.
Fighting the Food Bug
Bed rest for 3 days and a trip to a Thai hospital seemed to clear everything up, but in the meantime we watched a lot of TV (luckily, the hotel had satellite!). Cupcake Wars and Dog the Bounty Hunter became favorites. Overall we were impressed with the Thai hospitals. We saw 3 different doctors, got blood tested for malaria, and a sonogram to check for a ruptured appendix — all for $80 with no insurance. The hospital cafe also cooked up a mean bowl of pork noodle soup.
Other Bits of Bangkok
Other than a lot of bed rest, we didn’t do too much in Bangkok. While Linley slept, James ventured out near the hotel to eat some delicious street food.
