Joanne's Journey to Thailand

Current Location

Khon Kaen, Thailand

Hi, I'm Joanne, and this fall I'm journeying from southeast Florida to southeast Asia in order to study in Thailand. Join me as I explore Thai culture, cuisine and current events!


This week, my classmates and I had the opportunity to visit Vientiane, the capital city of the country of Laos.


What is considered rude or ill-mannered in the United States may not equate to what is rude or ill-mannered in other countries. It's important to remember that cultural differences are not bad.

Field Notes

For this Field Note, I interviewed a student at my university, Saksorn Srisak. He goes by Mikki. We met on my first day here at a meet and greet hosted by the school!


This past weekend, I took an independent trip to Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. Visiting art expos and events is one of my favorite pastimes, so I visited the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC).
