I admire your sense of travel, how ever you were really lucky in not getting really fleeced on your adventure. That 70 dollar dinner in Thailand was about 10% of their monthly salary, and you covered that on just one meal. Be careful and continue to travel.
Yeah! Lesson definitely learned, dont worry bout that! I was much more savvy when I came back 2 weeks later....but thats another chapter.
Sorry its coming so slow. I was hit off my 950 by a truck about 8 weeks ago, and kind of broke 5 bones and lost the use of my right arm. Only just got out of hospital, and still learning to type one-handed. Don't worry, more coming soon.
