Update: I’m getting a cold!

Well, the last two days involved a lot of walking  around in the hot sun.   Bangkok is easily twice as humid as Florida and heavily polluted.   Today was worse than yesterday as I didn’t have a golf cart!

I think I’m catching a cold!  I’ve been going in and out of air-conditioning all day while drenched in either sweat or rain.  I was covered with sweat going into “Snow Town”, which probably didn’t help.  :(

Towards the end of the day my feet were killing me!  Fortunately, there was some help available in the park:

Foot Massage!

For a bit less than $10, I got an hour long foot massage.   I’ve forgotten how great these are!  There’s less “rubbing” than in a standard western massage.  In a Thai foot massage, the person giving the massage is also using accupressure techniques.   The end result is after an hour, it felt like someone attached a brand new pair of legs to my body!

It’s 8:30pm here, I’m going to go to bed soon due to my cold.   If I do any sort of outside activity tomorrow, it will be something low-impact like going shopping at one of the great malls they have in Bangkok.

Thanks for reading!

I must admit I’m enjoying the blog. More! More!

Did little Jim skip the foot massage or did he get one for the hair?

Hmmm… they didn’t offer Hair massage unfortunately ;)
