Studying in Thailand — Episode 2

The mattress on my dormitory bed is so hard that I’m finding it difficult to sleep. I woke up at 5:00 this morning. Feeling a little hungry, I went for a walk to find something to eat. I found some chicken on a skewer. I had to go out today to get a SIM card and to buy my school uniform. One of the staff members of the political science department took me to the nearest shopping center, where I was able to get everything I needed. When I got back to the dormitory, I chatted with a Thai girl. I was surprised to see all the vegetables she had. There’re no supermarket nearby, so I wanted to know where she had bought them. She told me there’s a kind of market near the faculty of agriculture, so I went there. You can see it in one of the pictures. When I was looking around for something to have for dinner, I came across a food stall that was displaying a picture of a dish that looked pretty good, so I bought it. But it was so spicy that I couldn’t finish it. Today I really hit it lucky. I wasn’t able to connect to the WiFi, but a girl called Susan very kindly helped me. This gave me a chance to talk with her and her friend Tina. They were really kind. Susan in particular helped me with many things I wasn’t sure about, so she has become my best friend now. It was nice to be able to go out for a walk with them later, too.
