No pics sorry! youve all seen Bangkok before and we cant be buggered to walk around these streets taking sad tourist pictures :D Youll get some more when we get to somewhere slightly more interesting.Weve applied for our India visa's and can collect them next Friday so we can have a blissed out 5 days away from BK before having to return...again!
despite the abundance of transport options in Thailand, occassionally one gets complacent and 'arses-up' ones onward travel! today we missed our train to Kanchanaburi, cos we reckoned it would only take an hour to travel 2km in Bangkok! how foolish I hear you say...well yes, Bangkok travel is like wading through wet cement. So after some 'french' practise from Adam we returned to our hotel and checked straight back in to the same room (which had been cleaned but still had the same sheets on the bed URGH!, but a frequent discovery in Asia, im afraid to say!)So here we are....stuffed with tasty curry and wasting the free 20 mins of internet we got with the meal (dont ask...this is Bangkok after all!!) Hopefully the 2 hours were allowing for the trip to the train station tomorrow will prove sufficient!If not I think Adam may well go mad and walk to Kanchanaburi! Hes really quite desperate to see those tigers at the temple :)
