We arrived in Bangkok last night, and after getting our visa's we needed to figure out how to get to our hostel. The easiest option was taxi, but being in cheap mode we decided to take the train. And I'm so glad we did because it cost us $1 per person to get here. We had to take 3 trains and it tooks us probably 3x as long as a taxi would, but we spent a lot less than a cab would have cost. So I'm happy to report that since we have arrived in Bangkok we have only spent $2! When we finally arrived at the hostel they upgraded our room from a double with a shared bathroom to a double with a private bathroom! So we now have our own room with our own private bathroom. We went right to sleep as we were exhausted, and woke up around 8am local time. The weather here is very hot and humid, but it's raining. I am blogging from the lobby of our hostel(Lub D Hostel - Siam Square) and we are now going to try and find something to eat.
