Happy Holidaze from Bangkok!
Got in last night 9pm, and it was close to 30 degrees. Sun came up here a few minutes ago and I think it's going to be a scorcher today!
Hope you're all well, and merry, and well-fed!
Thanks for thinking of me, and talk to you later!
VT in BKK
Oh remember, this is a family friendly board so I'd refrain from the Patpong pics!
Ha ha! Went to Patpong area and was bemused. After the umpteenth "menu" was waved in my face, my response (said with a smile) was "No thanks, I've already eaten." Which made my wife and friend laugh, and seemed to confuse the menu-wavers.
There is nothing sexy about Patpong, unless you enjoy the stink of desperation.
Bangkok was quite easy to negotiate. The sky-train is a pretty slick way to get around, although it doesn't go to the Palace etc areas.
Cabs are quick and cheap, for the most part.
We're in the Northeast now, after seeing the amazing temples of Ayutthaya. Enjoying lots of different kinds of food, and Thai rum/whiskey/"blended spirits".
Heading to the Deep South tomorrow, for food, beaches, and possibly a dirty-hippy-rasta bar...
Happy New Year!
