This toilet is a JOKE!!!!
Scenario #1:Our last night in our hotel was upon us and after a relaxing morning, Danny and I had to make a decision on what our next move was going to be. Would we continue to stay in Chiang Mai or would we move on? We decided to take the easy road- stay another night and figure it out tomorrow. Except, our hotel was full. We had to leave.-- Is this a joke?
Scenario #2: With our hotel being full, our decision was decided for us so we made a further decision to move on to Lampang, a city known for its famous elephant center. With a guesthouse easily booked by a phone call, we needed a mode of transportation to get us there. Why not a train? We asked around and heard we should book right away because trains could be full. We took a Sorng taa ou (Song tau), converted pickup truck with benches in its bed (Don't worry mom- it's safe, well almost), to the train station for 50 baht each or $1.60. When we arrived at the station, the woman behind the counter kindly said, "Please buy your ticket on the day you depart, thank you!" After a slight beg and puppy dog eyes from the furongs, she repeated herself "Please buy tomorrow, 50 baht" -- Is this a joke.

Scenario #5 After 3 hours of freezing, we reached our destination, Lampang, Thailand. With a short and cheap sorng taa ou ride to our guesthouse- I thought to myself- Is this a joke?!?
