Writing this from an authentic Bangkok hostel with 8 minutes of coin-prepaid internet remaining on the dial I wanted to introduce myself and lead into the series of International Experience (IE) posts we will all be contributing over the next 3 weeks from different corners of the world. My official IE trip begins on Monday the 6th in Dhaka and will continue through rural Bangladesh and into Vietnam. Our professor and TAs have put together an amazing schedule of diverse visits and a Bonsai River cruise for treat. Right now though, it's all fun and games with a group of about 20 people I didn't know a year ago. They are all disbursing to different IE destinations (some of them blogging about their trips) in SE Asia, but we are spending Spring break together in Thailand. 2 minutes on the clock and the group is ready to head to JJ Market in Bangkok!
