So, we arrived at at 8am local time on the 25th.... I always hate flying to Asia, not because i don't like the place, but becasue of the jet lag i incur flying that way round the world! So, after a stop over of an hour in Abu Dhabi, Sarah and i caught the final leg of our journey to Bangkok. Predictably, there was a huge que at the immigration desk, mauinly of fat western men who headed straight to their type of area. Cab prices have increased slightly in the last 2 years - 400b to the centre - sorry, how dull am i? So, after a siesta which knocked us for 6, we went out for some street food and a massage, both of which were good. 9pm rolled around and i insisted on heading back to my old 9pm meeting point with the lads - same little lad still runs it
Hazy night ensured and saw us getting home at 6am!
one more night in bangkok before we head to Laos for a brief spell...... Ended up in Patpong and saw a show involving pingpong balls where i had to return the serve with a minging bat!
So, Laos is stop no 2, 18 hours on a bus as flying will eat into the budget a bit.
