Hi! My name’s Rivka, though my two-year-old sister calls me Icka. I’m eight years old. I was born in Bangkok, the capital city of Thailand. Thailand is a beautiful tropical country that millions of tourists come to visit every year. I love visiting the floating market, drinking coconut milk straight from the fruit, and visiting the nearby elephant farm. Our neighborhood is so crowded and busy that we have to leave our neighborhood with a tuk-tuk in order to find space to play jump rope. What’s a tuk-tuk? Well, I guess you’ll have to read inside to see!
