Not too sure why. There were just some things that we wanted to see on that side, and it seemed to be the best route over to Egypt and Jordan.

The roads are definitely chaotic there, but by the time you get there, I am more then sure you will be accostomed with that. As you will probably be running into it from Mexico down. Any info you need on Thailand, I am more then willing to help you out!!!!!
Be Safe!!!! And watch out for those damn donkeys in the middle of the street on the bends in Mexico and south!
I've been to Thailand twice - Phuket and Bangkok. Paula has never been. I'm looking forward to Chaing Mai this time. I lived in Taiwan for four years and studied Mandarin Chinese for 6 months. It doesn't seem to help in Thailand. Taipei City has the craziest drivers of anywhere that I have driven (Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, etc.). Thailand wasn't too bad, although I only rode scooter there in Phuket.
