Well, I've been here two weeks tomorrow and have gotten to do a lot of flying and also was able to see the some new places. 18 of us took a trip to Bangkok last weekend and all I can say is that it was an experience. We stayed in a very nice hotel. The room was awesome and moderately priced but it was expensive to eat or drink there. They had a bar on the 38th floor that we decided to check out and for a Jack and Coke it was 300 baht ($10). Needless to say, I nursed that thing for about an hour. But we did get the see the sights. We all went to a jewelry store that is a must do I was told. I ended up picking up some nice things for Kimberly's birthday. My beer fund took a major hit. I'm kidding.
Anyway, not too much longer. Off to Iwakuni in another week. I can't wait to see all my fruit and milk that I left in the fridge. However, I would like to cook some of my own meals. The food here is great but there is only so much rice and fried food I can handle. Sounds crazy coming from me, huh, Kimberly! It will be nice having my own place and not have to share a shower and a bathroom with 3 other people. It is kind of fun having roommates. We all huddle around the kitchen table (the "internet cafe") and are either playing online poker or talking to our wives via Skype. And if you have never heard of Skype it is an online communication sight that you can talk to anyone with video for free . Or you can call a land line in the US for pretty cheap.
I will post some more pictures when I download them off my camera. Unfortunately I left it in my helmet bag at work. I am always taking pictures in the jet. Take care.
