Studying in Thailand — Episode 1

I took the Keikyu line to Haneda Airport and got off at the International terminal. I suddenly felt so nervous that I got a stomachache. After checking in and going through passport control I decided to have a bowl of ramen, because I thought I might not have a chance to eat later. I had a really good seat because JAL had overbooked economy class and upgraded me to premium economy. I nearly got lost trying to find my connecting flight at the airport in Bangkok. It’s really complicated trying to find your way there, so I think they need to have bigger signs. My plane to Chiangmai got in at around nine in the morning. When I came out into the arrivals lobby there was a woman waiting for me. She was wearing glasses and was holding a sign with my my name on it. This was Pui, who works in the political science department, which I am going to be studying in. She took me to the dormitory that I will be staying in for the next five months. The picture showing a scooter driving along a road was taken near my dormitory. I had a heavy headache, so the first thing I wanted to do was to rest for a while. That night I went out to look for something to eat for dinner. It was easy to find something, because at night Chiangmai University is surrounded by food stalls. They are all over the place.
