Well, we arrived in Bangkok at 2pm right on schedule.

We were very surprised to see a Thai gentleman greet us with a name sign with both our names on it. It turns out that a freind of ours, a professor at a State University in Bangkok, has ties to the Thai government. He sent a diplomatic attache to meet us at the plane and take us directly thru to the diplomatic gate.

We were both tremendously impressed as we were basically waved thru immigration and customs in only a few minutes. We picked up our checked baggage and then met Nuk's parents who had arrived to pick us up.
