Off again...

And I'm off again...still heading north.  About six and a half hours this time, from Bangkok up to Sukhothai to see the ruins if the old capital. 
I'm still rather amazed at how easy it is to get around here.  At bus terminals, the ticket windows are clearly labeled with the destinations, in both Thai and English.  The staff always speak a few words, at least, in English.  There are frequent buses to just about everywhere.  After being in Thailand, I understand why westerners are often advised to go to Thailand their first time to Asia; it is less of a culture shock thanks to the well-established tourist infrastructure and especially because of the friendly, no-hassling people.
