bikes... check.

we finally have our bikes in our possession. bikes which were manufactured in the u s of a, purchased in singapore, shipped to bangkok, picked up after paying a small bribe to customs, then tetris-style stacked into a tuk tuk that brought them safely to our snug little home. we're glad they made it and we're glad we didn't have to pay $800 to customs.

we purchased our train tickets today. the four of us depart out of laksi train station on sunday, march 29th, and travel overnight to chiang mai where we will begin our bicycle touring through central asia. woot woot!
