Flight left about 9.30am this morning and took about 6 and a half hours to get to Bangkok
I think you can tell quite a lot about a place from the vibe you get when you first get there. When I arrived in Tokyo you could just tell everyone in Japan is going to take their job seriously with everything in full working order, spotless and run on time. In Bangkok the first thing I noticed was that as we landed there were people playing golf literally 20 metres away from the wing of the plane! Wasn't exactly what I was expecting although not sure what I was expecting. Think there may be some major accidents involving planes and golf balls if I got to play on that golf course. From the time it took me to walk from the arrival gate to this internet lounge I must have been asked several thousand times whether I want a taxi and where I was going. Getting the feeling Japan broke me into the whole traveling thing quite gently (if not expensively). Still have to find somewhere to sleep tonight. Better get going, really beginning to stink now...
