I almost forgot to share. After the amphawa floating market I totally had an awesome experience with a Japanese and Thai family inviting me to spend time with them when they saw I was alone. They kept getting me loaded on whisky haha they could pack it away, I was impressed. They shared some areas in Japan I should see also so guess I gotta go.
If anyone has seen "Louie" TV show with Louis CK it reminded me of the episode he goes to China out of the blue and a family invited him to eat with them and laugh. Fun to talk with them, the mom was the rough translator between English, Thai and Japanese, impressive. I taught them about the Hawaii Shaka, cultural exchange ya haha.
Very friendly and funny family, my cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing so much 😁 happy to experience that
