Leaving with a Sabaidee

THAILAND | Saturday, 12 March 2005 | Views [1262]

We're killing time in a bakery/coffee shop next to the Siam Centre. The bus threw us out at the airport after an all-nighter from Vientiane, crossing out of Laos' borders and into Thailand at the Friendship Bridge and then endless miles of real Dual Carriageway back into the capital. I'm tired, despite having slept a bit on the bus thanks to scoring Seats #1 and 2 with several feet of legroom out in front, allowing a semi-horizontal snoozing position.  Hurrah!

We were at the airport at 5.45am in the still-sticky dark and had found somewhere to leave our bags by 6.15am. Since then, it's been a series of lingering moments in coffee shops, a bus trip from the airport to another coffee shop and then loitering until the doors of this Megaplex shopping world open at 10am. Now at 8.55am, I'm looking out the window at a dozen Thai models from 14-24 years nattering away on some benches outside... legs as long as you like and those bony frames that make clothes hang well, never getting caught on any lumpy, curvy bits. Looks like we've landed in the middle of Bangkok's Fashion Week and there are simply minxes everywhere!

Laos moves further away with every minute; inevitable, but sad. I'll leave with a cheery "Sabaidee" as the trip comes to a close.
