Pattaya - 2014 Oct 25

Changed hotels again at noon, Max Hotel ($22)...still not satisfied.
Dr. Narong talked to me for a while at lunch. He still wants me to teach, and is going to help me learn Thai. I guess it will be a good break from the gogo's and massages. I bought an Introductory Thai textbook from him ($8).

Walked a few blocks to the Central Festival Shopping Mall - another huge, six-story complex. Found a new, sturdier pair of flip-flops; tired of wearing hot shoes all the time.

Started Chapter 1 of the textbook.

Sawàt dii khráp = Hello, good morning/afternoon, and goodbye.
