Friday morning I went to the hospital to work with the neurologic rehabilitation patients. I was working with a little three year old girl who was being rather squirmy and uncooperative. The physical therapist told her something in Thai that I didn't understand and soon she was following my every move giggling and doing her exercises exactly as I showed. It turns out that the physical therapist had told her I was a real life Barbie doll that she could play with. I was a little confused but at least it worked. On the way back to the apartment from the hospital I saw this guy cruising around.

After awhile we decided to take the river taxi to Khao san road and check it out. Some of our other friends wanted us to meet them at a robot restaurant (where robots serve you). While we didn't end up making it to the robot restaurant we had a lot of fun looking around.

After meeting up with the others we decided to go to this sky bar. However, our taxi driver thought we should go somewhere else and took us to this random club really far away from the place we had in mind. A lot of taxi drivers get commissions from certain clubs if they take you there, sooo they take you to those clubs instead of where you want to go. A series of events made it very clear that this is what happened in our situation. A fierce group such as ourselves was not to be deterred from our sky bar that easily though. So we decided to try to walk there (or anywhere besides the sketchville we had arrived at really) and about 45 mins later we luckily stumbled upon it. Here are a few pictures from it!
