Back to the city

After our toast and smoothie breakfast this morning we'll be leaving Kanchanaburi and spending the night in Bangkok before flying to Bangladesh tomorrow a.m.! We finally have our accomodations set up for our first few night in Dhaka and we have a great translator who already has been amazingly helpful. We are glad things have fallen into place and we will begin our Grameen training on Sunday.

Yesterday we had a pretty relaxed day in Kanchanburi. We rented bikes and rode to the famous WWII site, the Bridge of River Kwai. After that we rode to the Thailand-Burma Railway Museum to learn about the history of the bridge and the railway, built by Allied POWs held by the Japanese.

For the rest of the day we hung out by our guesthouse pool- delightful!

Wish us luck in Dhaka!!
