christmas in thailand

Spending a few days in Hua Hin, Thailand, including Christmas day itself. It was about a 4 hour flight from Hong Kong to Bangkok, followed by a 3 hour ride in a van. The guy who was driving the van turned on a DVD of "Air Force One" when we got in -- I guess the average tourist visiting this area would rather watch a movie than look out the windows at a country they have never been in. We turned the movie off immediately, and instead enjoyed the view.

Do people really have such low attention spans that they need to watch a movie when they are traveling for the first time in a foreign country? Harrison Ford is great and all -- I'm sure Indiana Jones 4 will be awesome -- but I'd rather check out Thailand than watch him kick terrorist butt.

That is all -- my laptop battery is getting low, and I'm afraid that if I plug it in, I'll be on the wrong voltage and fry my computer.

Merry Christmas!
