Where I stayed
We stopped for a coffee in the station and to watch everyone stand to attention when the national anthem was played. Imagine my surprise when my name was announced over the PA. asking me to go to the information desk! I had left my card in the ATM after withdrawing some cash. Some kind soul had handed it in. My faith in human nature has been restored but Carolyn still has not let me forget it!
We had decided to rent a car in Bangkok for a week and so stayed close to the station at the Train Inn for 950 baht per night. (good place if you are getting an early morning train as it is only a minute or so from the station).
Back in BKK we had to pay a visit to my spiritual home the Hard Rock Café, for a drink with Eric and Bruce (Clapton and Springsteen) - unfortunately it was only their photographs and guitars present!
