Good morning, Bangkok

We just arrived in Bangkok. This is our first trip to the Orient. We flew on China Airline via Taipei, Taiwan. Seattle to Taipei was about 14 hours, due to strong head winds. We flew over Japan at night. Too bad; it is beautiful. Then 3.5 hours to Bangkok. I was asleep and missed the coast of Viet Nam and its mountains. I did see some foothills in Laos. Excellent service, except for a couple of mediocre areas. Connecting at Taipei everyone was smiles "this way for Bangkok" until we got through another security check point, then no one knew a thing. There were a dozen Americans wandering for an hour seeking the gate info. Almost funny. We had enough time. Overall B plus. More later.
