Bangkok Blues

Its a small small world.

Our one and only day in Bangkok. Sitting in our hostel's terrace we first met our airplane friend - Christopher - who we had a few drinks with.
And after a bit of a walk around the Kao San Road (not that cheap ...for Thailand) we returned to our spot on our hostel's terrace only to bump into someone I (India) know from Sheffield! .... that's Tom Marsh for those who know him.

Tom led us to a few places he remembered from his first trip to Bangkok, a lovely restaurant called Hemlock, and the Adhere Blues bar where we sat down to enjoy a good ol-fashioned jamming session of the Banglampoo blues band. We had to call it a night fairly early due to our early start for the Bus to the border... but there was enough time for Tom Marsh to mildly insult a very drunk Swedish guy by asking him if he liked monkeys.

Off we Go!

London - Mumbai - Bangkok

overcast

Well we made it here in one piece.

We arrived 7pm last night to a super-shiny Bangkok airport and headed straight to our fancy hotel, the Royal Princess, to recover from the flight. Hotel turned out to be quite weird - empty of people except the odd man in a business suit - and quite overstaffed-
We hid in our room until morning where we a strange international breakfast of tasteless fruit, wierd pancakes and cheeewwwy bacon....
had a morning swim in a lovely swimming pool and then got the HELL out of there. We overpaid our way in a tuk tuk across town to the Koh San Road and settled into a more budget traveller-type hostel.

Beer. Pad Thai. Beer.

We leave Bangkok tomorrow- Cambodia here we come!
