By Bye Thailand- Our Last Day

We only had one day to pick up some things before heading back home so we had breakfast at a near by food stall and checked out of the hostel.  The hostel was pretty cool about letting us use their storage and showers even though we checked out.

We headed to Sampeng Market in Chinatown to find some bargains.  It was pretty chaotic as there was a Chinese festival going on and the streets were crowded.  We walked around and bought some snacks from the street vendors.  I almost felt like I was Christmas shopping with the high level amount of stress from the crowds.  We found somethings but got too tired to continue shopping.

We headed back to our hostel and set out to find a place to eat for lunch.

We decided to return to MBK mall where it is air-conditioned and more room to roam freely and explore versus the narrow sidewalks of Chinatown.  We ate at the International food court and continued to shop.

We went back to the hostel packed our things, had a few beers and set off for the airport.  It was bittersweet, I was sad to leave Thailand and end our vacation but I was anxious to be back in my own home and see Chewie and Odie and my family.
