Mishna 'Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves' Henry David Thoreau


THAILAND | Sunday, 16 September 2007 | Views [601]

So arriving in Bangkok really wasn't as bad as everyone said, no culture shock at all! The temperature was a bit of a shock... a nice 32degrees but I'm sure we'll get used to it!

Lucy was incredibly impressed by the pink taxi taking us to our hotel which turned out to be the best hotel ever with the most amazing garlic bread!! (not a tradtional Thai cuisine I know but I had spring rolls too!!)

The hotel (Shanti Lodge Bangkok) is really tranquil with indoor fountains. As it's more like a home they make you remove your shoes before you walk in. Very nice!

12/09 - Tried to find Khao San Road by walking in the wrong direction but found it later on!! What a street, it really is like the Vegas of Bangkok!

13/09 - Moved hotels to New World Lodge, is ok but no way as nice as Shanti and probably costs twice as much!

Met some of our Intrepid group, so far a guy called Raj and a girl called Hazel - both from England. After eating out with our Cambodian leader Con we sampled a lot of the local beers!!! and randomly played pool with some Irish guys in an Irish bar.
