Where I stayed
As you know, we left for the BKK on Tuesday, nearly a week on and we've made it up to Chaing Mai in the North this morning. Here's a quick updat on what we've been up to in between....
To some up Bangkok, it was pretty much shop, beer, pad thai, beer, tuk tuk, beer, temple, beer, sleep, beer, pikey thai rip off merchants, beer, ping pong, beer, fakes, beer...etc We stayed in a place called Mom's in the heavily touristy Khao San Road area which was basic but comfortable.
A few highlights of the week included:
> Overly friendly hostesses going for Henry's wallet in Pat Pong, and some toe stamping when they came away empty handed, follwed by a hasty exit
> Various temples
> Watching the rugby with some English peeps, and one token springbok
> Eating every meal (except one pizza hut) from street vendors for less than 50p a pop
> Mixing it up with the locals, and their whisky, in a student bar, with crazy thai chaps dancing away in the background
We're now staying in the Eagle 2 guest house in Chiang Mai and are gonna be heading off into the hills to do a bit of elephant riding and such. Hope you are all well at home and are enjoying the cold weather.
