Itchy

If I had a choice of a month in Paris or three days in Thailand right now, I would choose Thailand. And this never happens.

I have a crazy itching for Asia, for dark humidity and sweat and curvaceous script and beer with condensation and overhead fans and the foreign.

I'm sure they have a cream for this itch, or I could scratch it. Is there anything worse than needing to run away while your feet are planted firmly on the ground?

Come to the Goldie instead - cheaper, closer, just as hot and the beer is just as cold.

Paris is probably interesting if you're morbidly wealthy, but Asia is the perfect place to get lost and feel like you've severed your lifeline.

I love that feeling of not knowing what's going on.

LOL SC! That's a different kind of trip...

Sarah, knew you'd understand.

Horace, you need to understand my mindset.

Cib, Paris doesn't have to be expensive. The "feeling of not knowing what's going on" - yes.

They serve different purposes, and what I need is definitely the latter.
