After gloating for so long about going away to sunnier climes, I suppose it only serves me right to find that I seem to have hit Bangkok at pretty much the same time as the rainy season. It was dry when I got into my taxi, but as we left the airport the driver pointed out the blackest cloud I'd ever seen, which first produced lightning (but, strangely, no thunder) and then, finally, someone turned the tap on - torrential rain. Welcome to Bangkok.

Don’t get me wrong though, it’s far from cold – even now at 10:30pm it’s 25oC – it’s just that it’s humid (94%!!!). The a/c in the taxi was on really high, so high in fact that even I felt cold. Yet when I stepped out of the taxi, despite the rain, I couldn’t see a thing as my glasses had fogged up completely.

Oh well, now it’s time to venture out into the Thai capital and see what delights the Khao San Road has for me.
