- fly back to Bangkok airport to meet up with parents

- We grab some dinner on the way to our Airbnb place and David,  Dani,  and my mom get food poisoning for the next 6 days. 

- dad and I wander around the streets close by as we need to keep checking on them and bringing them meals

- catch a sleeper train to Malaysia then cab to  Penang. Bench seats in the sleeper fold out into a large single bed and a bunk bed pulls  down over top. Very comfy and clean. There's a public bathroom and sink at the end of the cart. 

- There's a meal cart which we bought lunch and dinner from but it's a good thing we packed plenty of snacks!  The meal cart is detached as soon as you cross the border into Malaysia.

- at the train station  in Malaysia walk away from the station for the best fares. The cabbies that approach you as you leave the station will be 5 x the price! 

- take a cab to the Penang airport. Took a plane to Kuala Lumpur - was cheaper and faster than taking the train
