Where I stayed
Rambuttri village hotel
Had a great couple of days here. We've been doing our fair share of sightseeing – Grand palace, wat arun, lucky budda and a river cruise (see video!) unfortunately we don’t have a cable to attach the camera to the comp and it doesn’t have a card reader but we are about to set out to find one so expect a bucket load soon haha!
The weather hasn’t been the best of friends to us and we have been caught in a couple of super heavy downpours! It’s so humid and sticky in Bangkok that you never quite feel clean and we’re both really looking forward to heading down to the beach to get some fresh air, sunshine and a bit of nature! Concrete jungles not much fun!
Anna’s wildlife report: Millions of dogs that all look the same, millions of cats with no tails, a few weird looking birds with yellow heads, jimungus fish that go nuts for bread and one bloody great Quasimodo dragon/monitor lizard (that had sam screeching like a girl!)
Getting around is always an adventure in itself,so far we’ve done tuk tuks (should not be allowed – scariest method of transport ever!), sky train, express boat, longboat and taxi. Sky train is by far safest/least stressful! A tuktuk driver who looked about 14 got stopped by a man with a large gun (police man,but still) and given a ticket for some reason. 10mins later this kid starts waving the ticket around saying that he cant pay and that we should. When he began to gesture something about hand cuffs we got out and walked away very quickly indeed!
Too much to report on here but we are writing a diary every day/ couple of days documenting events such as the one above which we’ll look forward to showing you all at some point in the near future!
Miss you all so very much (I know we write this each time but we really mean it. Last night when we had a bout of homesickness, sam had to have a ban on sad songs on his ipod and I had to ban all discussion of Bella/home comforts! Otherwise tears and tantrums might have ensued! Hehe.)
We are having a fantastic time and feel very lucky to be here
Hope everyone is ok, good grief its chucking it down again!
Write again very soon,
Anna and Sam
