In nine days I will be traveling to Thailand to attend the Human Health and the Metropolis: Tensions and Transformations in Southeast Asia program in Bangkok. I am so excited to finally get there although the twenty-three hour travel time is not something I’m looking forward to. I am finally done with finals so it is starting to hit me that I will be embarking in this journey soon. I am so thrilled to be learn about a new culture and engage in traditions of Thai people. I also cannot wait to participate in community service that the program has scheduled for us, its just a way to give back to those who need your assistance. I have never traveled somewhere so far and although the difference in language, food, and culture altogether may be one I am not familiar with I can not wait to learn about them all and experience it for myself!
