I don't know. The hostel art piece looks a little creepy to me. Enjoying the thread though.


Haha I can see how someone might be creeped out by it. I really like it though, does that say something about me? I love the Goku doll from my favourite anime, Dragonball Z. It is in the red section.

Iím enjoying the TR very much PG! Did you get a chip from the housegame? How was the rake?
When I die, I want everyone who ever worked with me on a group project to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one last time.

Amazing how cheap some of these countries are. If you bought all that around here it would easily be $50

I did get a chip. The rake was standard for Asia, actually on second thought cheap for Asia. 5% up to 500 Baht which is just under $16 USD.

GWAE that is nothing. Bangkok is one of the most expensive places Iím going to visit in Asia. My entire month in India will be about $650 USD which includes a lot of high end travel. I will be flying a lot, all my train tickets are 1st class and Iím staying in the nicest hostels. The $650 also includes day to day expenses. You can live VERY well in these countries for very little money.

Well I made it to Sri Lanka. I got very lucky finding the hostel and got ripped off by a tuk tuk but only for a few hundred rupees so I donít really care because it is $1.30 usd that I might have been screwed over for. Basically I donít care lol.

When in Rome do as the Romans do... and kill the tuk tuk driver over a $1.30. Not a Tamil area I assume.

On occasion I will drive uber for a while. I picked up some guy from morocco and we were talking about the country. He gave me his number and said if I ever wanted to visit that I should call him and for $100 USD he would be my personal tour guide all week and I would probably only need about $150 a person for a week including food, housing, souvenir, and activities. I thought he was crazy, but maybe not?
