It was only my second time on the continent of Asia when I stepped off the plane in Bangkok, Thailand. The excitement of something new mixed with that slight trepidation of the unknown was palpable.

He came to Thailand for boxing, and ended up making connections and landing a teaching job without any previous experience.

There is only one place I could be: Bangkok.
