Letters From Bangkok: To Brazil From Abroad

25 October 2018 To Papi, I awoke this morning at six o’clock. Not because I wanted to, not because I had plans, not even because I forgot that I had my alarm set. I woke up at six o’clock on the dot to loud pounding on my door. Knock. Knock. Knock. Awakened in a sweat, […]

Letters From Bangkok: To a Small Island From Abroad

15 October 2018 Dear Samy, What can I say about Bangkok that I haven’t already told you about? It’s the most-visited city in the world and, still, I feel like it is under-explored. Most people who visit use it as a stopover on their way to the mountains in the north or the islands in […]

Letters From Bangkok: To Kansas City From Abroad

19th October 2018 Dear Grandad, I’ve been in Bangkok for about a month now. It’s hard to describe this place and even more difficult to navigate. The city seems so vast and endless when compared to island life in Malta. I reckon I’ll leave in a month and have no better idea of the place than when […]

Letters From Bangkok: To San Francisco From Abroad

5th October 2018 Lily (Crutch), I read the poetry you sent me last night. You’re so good at stretching my imagination for poetry. You’re in California, in the Bay, fourteen hours behind me. That concept, alone, seems unbelievable to me. How can someone be living a life more than half a day behind my own? […]

Letters From Bangkok: To Home From Abroad

1st October 2018 Dear Mom, I’m writing to you while caught in the rain in Bangkok. I checked the forecast and knew it called for rain almost all day but didn’t want to spend a full day shy of getting wet. So, I decided to take a stroll to my favorite Buddhist temple nearby, Wat […]

Letters From Bangkok: To Houston From Abroad

27h September 2018 To my longest friends, This isn’t handwritten like I promised. Maybe next time. Everything in this city is so hard to find. There are hardly any addresses and even though there is a million-and-one-shops, it seems they all sell the same thing. Therefore, I’ve yet to track down a pad of paper. […]

Letters From Bangkok: To London From Abroad

4th October 2018 Dear Cass, Today is the first day it didn’t rain since I’ve been in Bangkok. At least, I think. I didn’t wake up until noon. The good weather gave me some much needed time to leisurely stroll. Usually, I’m limited in how far I can make it from Khao San Road before […]
