Bangkok Traffic Post by Kari Lawrence

To everyone at home who has to deal with rush hour traffic to or from work everyday, it could be worse! On our way to our lecture by the minister of public health the other day, we hit the worst traffic I have ever experienced. Our location couldn’t have been more than 20 miles away from our hotel, but believe it or not we spent almost two hours in the bus trying to get there! Every travel book I flipped through before coming here mentioned that the Thais were very patient people who hardly ever let anger get the best of them. After sitting in that traffic, I’m not sure how they do it! Just another thing that makes Bangkok unique I guess! Needless to say, you won’t hear me complaining about rush hour traffic in Minnesota anymore!
